Fashion statement: The Costume Institute Gala -- hits and misses
Last night the stars turned out for the annual Costume Institute Gala at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. While most of the models and actresses on hand managed to nail the event's sweet spot somewhere between edgy and glam (see our gallery for the night's most fetching looks), a few stars clearly overshot the mark.
1. Katy Perry
Don't adjust your monitors, her dress was laced with what looks to be strands of rope lighting. DIY: Clear rope lights, $9.99 at Ace Hardware.
2. Kristin Stewart
Stewart vamped up her mini-dress with a long underskirt of what appears some kind of glitter-sprayed unhemmed mesh. DIY: 50 yards of 54-inch wide tulle, $44.99 at Joann Fabrics.
3. Elizabeth Banks
Banks, who has been guesting on "30 Rock" of late, muddled what would be an otherwise cute frock with furry frontpiece and statement stockings. DIY: Black Flokati Rug, $199.99 at Target.
Who rocked the red carpet? Check the gallery again and let us know your top picks.
