Ashley Olsen at the 2011 MET GALA
Last night was the 2011 Metropolitan Costume Institute Gala in NYC and everyone was out in their finest and most daring. This ain't the Oscars folks.... (it's Christmas for fashionistas).
The Lady Book 'look of the night' has to go to Ashley Olsen in vintage Christian Dior haute couture. Seeing this dress makes me think the Olsen twins had wished Kate Middleton would have paid hommage to Princess Diana's wedding dress..... When this didn't happen, I guess they took it upon themselves. And voila- the most glamorous and perhaps one of the most daring gowns of the evening. Only an Olsen would have the confidence and know-how to pull off puffy sleeves like this and it's surprising that despite her diminuative stature the poof doesnt overwhelm. We're sure this one will be a hotly debated "love it or hate it"- but as far as we're concerned it's classic Dior and drop dead chic.
