The annual Costume Institute Benefit Gala (otherwise known as the Met Ball) , paid homage to the late Alexander McQueen this year , both on the red carpet and with the unveiling of the exhibition entitled Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty. The collection spans 20 years, all the way from the designers beginning with his graduate collection from Central St Martins College of Art in London, all the way up until his death. The museum has also borrowed a significant number of outfits from Isabella Blow's personal collection, which were all bought by Daphne Guinness earlier this year. It also features highlights from McQueen's tenure at Givenchy. The exhibition will run from May 4 to July 31 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

As for my fave red carpet gowns, it's a tough call between Ashely Olsen wearing vintage Dior Couture, Coco Rocha wearing Alexander McQueen and Natasha Poly's sexy nude Alexander Wang gown. What's your favourite dress?
