Met Gala 2013 Trend: Fancy Pants


… And the punk looks keep marching in! Let's have a moment of appreciation for all the ladies who stepped into pants¬†for the red carpet at the Met Ball, shall we? Back in 2009,Brooklyn Decker broke the “black tie” mold, boldly showing off a Derek Lam jumpsuit on the carpet, which was such a moment. Could Decker's look have been the ultimate punk rebellion? She opened the fashionable floodgates it would seem, as insiders pushed the stylish envelope in years to come, culminating in a parade of pants at the 2013 Met Gala.

Expecting mommy-to-be Jaime King wore a custom Topshop suit with a lace turtleneck and pretty gold head piece.Kristen Stewart, the UK's best dressed woman on the red carpet, chose a Stella McCartney lace trimmed monochromatic jumpsuit with matching eyeshadow, despite her relationship with Nicholas Ghesquiere and Balenciaga. Nina Dobrev couldn't choose between pants and a skirt, therefore decided to go for both in a custom-created Monique Lhuiller ensemble, proving she knows how to switch it up. Jessica Pare brought the drama in head-to-toe Jason Wu while Hilary Rhoda hosted in a black and gold lace, blouse that swept the floor when she walked, paired with leather skinny pants, all by Wes Gordon.
