The Met Gala 2012 | Looks, photos, and dresses we loved (and loved to hate)

Thoughts: most of the attendees were too skinny. And, to be honest, quite a few of the dresses looked like they fell out of the pages of a schizophrenic fashion spread. A good number of people looked extremely uncomfortable having to stand next to each other, too, which is always fun to catch on film.

All that said and done, though, it’s still the Met Gala. So, without further adieu, here are a few of the photos that I loved.

All image sources attributed in the file name.

Favourite dress of the night: probably this gorgeously feminine number on Rashida Jones. At right, Rooney Mara.

Anna Wintour and Bee Shaffer

I’m just not sure how I feel about either of these.

Ashley Greene and Solange Knowles, lovely in white and bright lemon yellow

As much as i’m really hoping this see-through-skirts thing doesn’t become a trend, I love Marion’s violet and black gown. Anja Rubik’s hip bone, however, looks like a weapon and needs to be put away.

And one last photo…

You subvert that gender binary, Marc Jacobs. #perfect human being.

#on another note, though, look at those shoes #I kind of hate them #world’s most awesome leprechaun

    Never mind the shoes he's wearing-THE SOCKS are what killed me. I love Marc Jacobs.

    Marc Jacobs is my gay-guy crush. Along with Anderson Cooper. Along with…well, the list is too damn long.

    Oh Marc Jacobs…why? I really don't want to see your boxers.

    Her hip bone is totally a weapon!

    Marc Jacobs is great. The sort of person my grandma would have referred to as "a peeler", whatever that means. Also, I desperately want Dianna Agron's dress. The color! The material!
    …Amy Adam's picture looks so perfect it seems staged. Is she just that photogenic? Is it ridiculous of me to hope that it actually was staged so that I can feel better about the dozens of horrible candids of myself?

    The hip bone is scary. Seriously scary! But other than that I'm quite impressed with how almost everybody dresses. I'm not too sure about the metal mesh thing either, but hey I supposed that's some kind of style! And no, PLEASE don't let anything see-through come back. I'm begging you!

    I liked Christina Ricci's dress the most. Atypical yet gorgeous.

    I completely agree – I thought that all the attendees (well, most) looked decidedly malnourished. NOT a look I'm a fan of, it makes everything look diminished when it could be glorious. Oh well.

    Also, very scared of Anja's hip, Elizabeth Banks seems to be stuck playing Effie in real life, and Marc Jacobs…WTF, dude.

    Wonderful, entertaining viewing all around, though :)

    Oh, Dianna Agron. Not my favorite of her looks, but she's still so bloody gorgeous. Amy Adams also looks fab!
