Met Gala 2012: best strapless

Solange Knowles in Rachel Roy (not to be confused with Rachel Ray) Beyonce's sister pulls off strapless the best. The color suits her wonderfully well, her hair is fabulous as are all the details. Quite beautiful.

(As I've mentioned over and over again, I really dislike strapless, find it dull and predicable because it seems to be the default style for red carpet. However, due to this phenomenon, the strapless gown won't be ignored and some deserve honorable mentions.)

Michelle Dockery aka the Lady Mary Grantham from Downton Abbey fame. One might think longer gloves would be more suitable and thought so at first but I've come to the conclusion the short black gloves are a quirky touch and not as predictable. She looks lovely.

Scarlett Johansson in Dolce and Gabbana. Pretty standard red carpet cinderella fluff but it suits her. I'd obviously never wear anything like this mainly because I'd look like an old hag but she can pull it. If only she'd done something different with her hair; Ms. Scarlett doesn't do limp and lank too well.  The girl in black behind her has a great dress although the boobs are trying too hard.
