Fashion’s finest came out to play at the Met Gala 2012 in New York, often referred to as referred to as “fashion’s Oscars“. Beyoncé Knowles took the spotlight at the A-list event, after giving birth to daughter Blue Ivy Carter in January, the 30-year-old’s figure looked sensational in her sheer sequin Givenchy Haute Couture gown. When asked by a reporter at the event about having more children, Beyoncé replied “I definitely want to have more. I don’t know how many. God knows I don’t know yet.” Gala chairs, Anna Wintour (editor in chief of Vogue magazine), Carey Mulligan and Muccia Prada received guests including Clare Danes, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kanye West, Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen, Rihanna, Cameron Diaz, Elizabeth Banks, Scarlett Johansson, Lea Michele and Rihanna at the Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s annual ball, dressed in haute couture. Justin Timberlake, wearing a Tom Ford tuxedo attended the event with his fiancée, Jessica Biel. After a record-breaking success of ‘The Avengers’, Johansson arrived in a custom Dolce & Gabbana gown, a solid gold creation to match her box-office triumph. “The dressing part was easy,” said Rihanna, running into the museum moments after the red carpet closed in a body-hugging black alligator skin Tom Ford gown with some major fingernails to match, “My nails took forever. They’re like claws.” It seems that Rihanna may have some fashion designing up her sleeve, “Designing is definitely in the near future for me. We’re working on it as we speak” said the pop star.
