Superheroes Weren't The Only Ones Looking Fashionable At The Costume Institute Ball

May 6, 2008 by Bryn

Everyone fab and famous absolutely could not stay away from the Met's Costume Institute Ball last night. The gala feted the opening of Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy. Although everyone was encouraged to dress in superhero-inspired garb, only a few took it to heart – namely Christina Ricci (who showed up in a bustier-type Wonder Womanesque ensemble and the head mistress herself, Anna Wintour, who was dressed in a fierce Chanel couture gown reminiscent of an impeccably dressed queen alien villain.

However, we did spot three big trends on celebs shuffling into the party, and below are some of our picks for who rocked them the best:

1. One-Shouldered Gowns: Like we saw at the Oscars, the one-shouldered thing is still going strong, with stars like Kate Mara, Fergie, Liv Tyler, and Claudia Schiffer all sporting the look. Channel Fergie's classic glam style with this Calvin Klein matte jersey dress ($178).

2. Bright, Contrasting Shoes: In a surprising turn, stars were pulling focus away from their shiny, happy faces and towards their perfectly pedicured feet instead. Katie Holmes and Diane Kruger both opted for bold colored heels that popped against the colors of their gowns. These Louboutins ($795) are perfect in pink, but for a more purse-friendly pick, try these satin Jelissa heels ($100).

3. Fierce Red Lips: A no-fooling-around red mouth was spotted on many a leading lady last night. Both Posh Spice and Scarlett Johansson paired their red pouts with creamy frocks, while Maggie Gyllenhaal coupled bright lips with a subdued plum gown. Capture the va-va-voom effect with Dior Rouge's Action Red lipcolor ($27) (perfect for an evening of fashionable superheroes).
