Which black starlet won our title for Best Dressed at the 2012 Met Ball?
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Vogue’s annual Met Ball went on as usual, but had tongues wagging from some of the dress choices from a few of Black Hollywood’s biggest stars. In particular, Beyonce (as usual) became the biggest topic as she appeared in a sexy gown that showed off her fabulous post baby physique. While there were many notable looks from La La Anthony, Paula Patton, Rashida Jones, and Alicia Keys; we tend to only remember a few.
But when it comes to great fashion, it’s always those looks no one can seem to stop talking about. While Beyonce was most definitely a show stopper, who topped Urban Belle’s Best Dressed list for the 2012 Met Ball? Was it Rihanna, Solange, or Beyonce? Here’s a last look and breakdown of what each wore:
Rihanna strutted down the red carpet in a long Tom Ford dress made out of Crocodile. Gorgeous dress, but Rihanna seemed to lose motivation when it came to a hairstyle. Her makeup was flawless as usual.
Solange stayed true to the Spring fashion trends and rocked a gorgeous canary gown designed by Rachel Roy. The second half of the famous Knowles sisters always seems to rock bright colors effortlessly. Her hair (wig) was big, fun, and absolutely perfect for the overall look. The glamorous clutch completed the look and reminded me just why Solange’s fashion sense is to be praised.
Beyonce stunned onlookers by rocking a full lace sexy Givenchy Haute Couture gown. The dress was one of the most revealing we’ve seen Bey wear ever, and it happens to be right after the birth of Baby Blue Ivy. Her figure is amazing and subtle makeup and less jewelry kept the gown from being too much for the event. The purple train was the perfect accent to this design.
So who slayed the most?
Solange. Not only did Miss Thang pay homage to the Spring Time and rock big hair with plenty of sass, but she had the right amount of trend, classic, glamour and fearlessness in one look.This season is all about big color, so a black dress is too easy to top no matter who wears it.
Who’s your pick?
