Madonna Met Gala 2011

This is the first time I've ever felt the need to write about something a celebrity wore. I am so smitten with Madonna's dress that she wore to the 2011 Met Gala:

I do believe that Stella McCartney is the designer. First of all, this is a GORGEOUS color! It goes so well with her skin AND hair color. Secondly, do you SEE that embroidery??? I'm dying over here. I just love it!

The front of this dress is VERY 1940's. The way the bodice is cut can be so flattering to MANY figures- show off your assets girl and hide the rest I say...

Her hair and make-up really gave a "Veronica Lake" kind of vibe. Just enough jewelry- PERFECTION!

Now for all of you clothes-sewing-do-it-yourselfers (is that even a word?)- I found some vintage patterns at So Vintage Patterns to help you along :-)

  1. Yes, this dress is stunning and I have to admit (as much as I hate to) Madonna also looks incredible. Love the whole look.

  2. When I saw you had a 1940's link, I felt like we were kindred spirits, lol! I love your blog and all your glad I found you!
