As usual there was a lot to take in at last nights gala. Of course, plenty of beautiful dresses and a few that weren’t so hot, but either way it was great fun to see everyone dressed to celebrate the “American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity.” Here’s a rundown of some favorites and a few trends I spotted.


Emma Watson in Burberry. I think the best dressed of the night, and also in one of the more popular colors. She’s gorgeous from head to toe, and so poised and graceful.

Sienna Miller in Emilio Pucci. A very close second favorite of the evening. Edgy and sexy, yet somehow quite elegant and tastefully done. She looks so radiant, maybe it’s because this was her first outing with on-again lova Jude Law.

And finally, the always gorgeous Zoe Saldana in Calvin Klein Collection. Simple but all of the finishing touches add up to one gorgeous dress. I’m not usually a fan of the asymetrical top, but I love the modern twists on a classic style.

There were tons of other dresses so here’s a quick recap of some of the more obvious trends of the evening.

ULTRA-WHITE: Love the sleek and simple silhouette of Diane Kruger’s dress, but not too crazy about the others. I can see some potential in the top half of Kirsten’s dress though.

Diane Kruger in Calvin Klein, Kirsten Dunst in Rodarte for Gap, Taylor Swift in Ralph Lauren, Joy Bryant in Marchesa.

SHIMMERY NUDES: I love the nude hues here, but I think Gwen may have my fave. I wish Jessica Biel had styled hers differently, not really feeling the hair.

Sarah Jessica Parker in Halston Heritage, Jessica Alba in Sophie Theallet, Gwen Stefani in L.A.M.B, Alessandra Ambrosio in Versace,  Kate Hudson in Stella McCartney, Jessica Biel in Ralph Lauren.

COLORS: I love this category! Oh the hot pink on Rachel, and the electric blue on Emmy…simple gorgeous. I really do love every dress here. I’m a bit on the fence with Thandie’s but she’s so gorgeous that she can wear anything, so I’ll just call it all good. I had to throw in Maggie Grace because the steely grey color of her dress really caught my eye.
