Mariacarla Boscono in Burberry

Mariacarla Boscono looks like an Oscar statuette in this gold sequin gown designed by her long-time friend and chief creative officer at Burberry, Riccardo Tisci. The 38-year-old Italian model literally shone on the Met Gala red carpet in this form-fitting, floor-length frock complete with mini train.

 Helen Mirren in Elie Saab

Ageless beauty Helen Mirren took my breath away and sent shivers down my spine in this silver foil embellished Grecian Elie Saab gown, and I love how the British actress has dyed her hair pink to match the hues of her dress.

Kate Moss in Marc Jacobs

Kate Moss is my hero in this caped Marc Jacobs dress. Ever the style icon, the supermodel remains effortlessly elegant and demure.

Strong, edgy and fabulous Tilda Swinton is once again a fashion phenomenon in this modern, minimalistic Haider Ackermann made-to-measure gown. I am in awe.

 Eva Longoria in Cristina Ottaviano

Classy and chic Eva Longoria sparkles in this off-the-shoulder Cristina Ottaviano. dress with its mesmerising abstract sequin details — a serious showstopper.
