The Best & Worst Dressed at the Met Gala 2012: Who Was Fashionable & Who Failed? (Photos)

January Jones Was Bold in Bright Yellow

The Met Gala is like the Oscars of fashion, and at the Metropolitan Costume Institute Gala of 2012 celebrities did not disappoint in scene-stealing ensembles. There were some gorgeous gowns, some had glitter, some had gold, some had glamour. Then there were the others … the ones that looked more like grandma’s furniture or that were too much of a statement.

Check out these celebrity moms, who was the best dressed and who was the worst?

See some of the stunning styles right here:

  • Best: Amy Adams 1 of 10
    Best: Amy Adams
    Amy Adams totally looked like an old school movie star in this stunning black and white gown by Giambattista Valli.
  • Worst: Sarah Jessica Parker 2 of 10
    Worst: Sarah Jessica Parker
    SJP wore a floral Valentino gown and although she embraced the very popular floral print, the dress looked more like Grandma's couch than high fashion.
  • Best: Heidi Klum 3 of 10
    Best: Heidi Klum
    Heidi Klum showed off some leg in this lace Escada gown. One thing for sure, the color looked great on her.
  • Best: Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady 4 of 10

    Gisele and Tom looked very happy on the red carpet. Gisele wore a dress by Givenchy.
  • Best: Jessica Alba 5 of 10
    Best:  Jessica Alba
    Mom of two Jessica Alba looked completely glam and gorgeous in her gold Michael Kors gown.
  • Best…Maybe? Karolina Kurkova 6 of 10
    Best...Maybe? Karolina Kurkova
    Karolina Kurkova looked like a diva circa 1978 in this glittery gown by Rachel Zoe. But I think it would have looked better without the turban.
  • Best: Sofia Vergara 7 of 10
    Best: Sofia Vergara
    Let's be honest, if Sofia Vergara was dressed in a burlap sack, she would still look amazing. Here she wears a goddess-like gown by Marchesa.
  • Worst: Beyonce 8 of 10
    Worst: Beyonce
    Okay, I love Beyonce. And yes, this dress was quite the statement gown, but the sheerness and the outrageous style, were a bit much.
  • Worst: Gwyneth Paltrow 9 of 10
    Worst: Gwyneth Paltrow
    Although Prada was the honoree of the night, Gwyneth's dress by Prada didn't seem fancy enough for the event. And there was a generous amount of "side boob."
  • Best: Brooke Shields 10 of 10
    Best: Brooke Shields
    Being over 45, this was a good choice for the star of stage and screen. It's stylish and swank, even when she is carrying a cane.
