Get the look: The Met Gala

By Harriet Hawksworth 08 May 2012

The Costume Institute Gala Benefit at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art is one of the most stylish red carpet events of the year. We chose our four favourite trends, with dresses to match, so you too can set pulses (and flashbulbs) racing.

1)    Silver Sequins

Recreate the mega-watt glamour of Cameron Diaz (right) and girl-of-the-moment Kate Upton (left).

2) Gothic Glam

In our eyes, Rooney Mara (left) can do no wrong, so it goes without saying that she's made our cut. French actress Marion Cotillard (right) possesses the same beguiling gothic glamour.

3)    Purple Reign

Purple, lilac and everything-in-between really rocked the red carpet, we love Dakota Fanning (left) and Paula Patton's (right) nod to the regal hue.

4)    White Night

The beauty of white is it suits all and never fails to look special. Wear chic and simple à la Ashley Greene (left) or add a vintage twist like the ever-stylish Amy Adams (right).
