Get . MET

My favorite fashion time of year has arrived!! Tonight was the annual MET Gala, and while I was kind of disappointed at last year's garments, this year the dresses were stunning!

Sure, there were some big missteps (cough...cough...Madonna), but overall there were some perfectly fashion-forward and gorgeous looks:

Ashley Olsen

Kate Bosworth

Rachel Bilson
(I debated about whether or not this was dressy enough, but there's just something about the whole look that pops)

Liv Tyler

Leighton Meester
(Leighton was my personal fave for the evening - this is a really unexpected way to wear both a mini and bold patterns; she also looks like she's absolutely glowing.

Liv Tyler's dress is kind of Old Hollywood Glam. I like it. Leighton's was wild. I like the legging look if that's what you would call it.

I think Rachel Bilson's dress is adorable, I love the color...but I think she looks ways cuter with bangs and shorter hair!

Ashley wins it for me. At least out of this group. And Leighton loses, in my book. Yikes. I hate the whole jockey pants look.

Ah, now I see that Leighton is actually wearing a skirt and leggings...but the similar pattern makes it look like she's wearing pants with a bubble butt.
