Finally one of the most long-awaited red carpet events, The Costume Institute Gala 2013 (also called the Met Ball or the Met Gala), took place on Monday, May 6. It is an annual event that commemorates an opening of the Metropolitan Museum’s fashion exhibition. This social event, hosted by Vogue, is used to be called a “Night of Nights” in the fashion circles since A-list actors, models and socialites arrive in the stunning and sometimes even extravagant outfits they wouldn’t dare to wear another time. Let’s take a look at models that stunned on the red carpet of the Met Gala 2013 in New York.
Models at Met Gala 2013
Karolina Kurkova shined on the red carpet in a literal sense. The Czech blonde wore a custom-made mini dress by Mary Katrantzou with a beautiful 3-D effect print. She complemented her statement outfit with pointed-toe pumps.
Hilary Rhoda combined a soft top with a tough bottom as she opted for a Wes Gordon ensemble, which included a black and gold lace blouse with a long trail and skinny leather pants. She styled her look with Kotur box clutch and strappy sandals.
Gisele Bundchen demonstrated her flawless legs as she wore an Anthony Vacarello mini dress with chain mail detailing, which she complemented with spiked sandals, a boxy clutch and oversized chain bracelets.
Jourdan Dunn looked amazing in Topshop floor-length black dress with sheer skirt and rhinestone-embellishment on the waist area, which she accessorized with ankle strap sandals.
Alexa Chung went for a black dress from Erdem Fall 2013 collection, which has a Victorian allure due to the band collar. The sheer waistline and sleeves along with a peek-a-boo texture of the top and skirt make this outfit stand out.
