Alexander McQueen must be smiling down on us.Just last week his eponymous label became a household name for non-fashionistas when Kate Middleton walked down the Royal Wedding aisle wearing a Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen gown and changed into a second McQueen dress by for the reception.Then there are the rest of who have been mesmerized by the art of his designs that went beyond what is known as fashion and into an extraordinary realm of self-expression and creativity into a conceptual expression of culture, politics, and identity.The designer who committed suicide in February 2010 is the subject of The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute exhibition for Spring 2011, "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty" that had it's gala last night. The retrospective opens to the public tomorrow.The exhibition celebrates the British designer and couturier's Central Saint Martins postgraduate collection in 1992 all the way through his final runway presentation, which took place soon after his death.Before last night's Met Gala, New Yorkers had the luxury of watching one of Alexander's McQueen's friends, the heiress and eccentric fashion icon Daphne Guinness "getting dressed" in a pale-gray duck and ostrich feather Alexander McQueen gown, with an exaggerated hip, for the event later last evening in the windows of Barney's New York as a performance piece.

So instead of ragging on the overdone rags, we will simply show you what we like and what will surely NOT produce any “what was she thinking” retrospective moments.There’s that wonderful adage about not wearing clothes that wear you and that’s what we want to concentrate on as we review the prettiest, we think, looks from last night’s red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala in New York.Sharon’s personal favorite for the night is Gwen Stefani wearing a dress of her own design that is edgy yet quite stunning and simple, pictured left.Take a look at some of our favorite elegant red carpet fashion looks from last night that will withstand the taste of time and tell us what you think…”
