NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Many ladies love their handbags and will spend a lot of money for the latest and greatest, but a new study says what is inside those bags may be covered in germs worse than what you’ll find in the bathroom.
Though Anna Wintour was impressively on time for her own event (so un-Vogue of her), the buzz surrounding the two-hour Met Gala red carpet ceremony centered on Beyonce, who, in classic diva style, showed up about 15 minutes after the majority of celebrity entrances had wrapped. As expected, the Twittersphere was aflutter with Bey's absence, only to shriek (or, if you're my sister, nearly collapse) with excitement when the new mom showed up....half-naked?
Escorted up the Metropolitan Museum's infamous steps by Andre Leon Talley, Beyonce wore a dramatic black feathered lace Givenchy gown that pooled into a long, cascading neon purple train. Of course, she paid homage to her 5-month old with her blue nails, and finished off her look with a low, side-parted pony tail. It's quite the followup to last year's Emilio Pucci fitted confection, which garnered mixed reviews despite its obvious drama and impeccable fit.
Though I'm enamored by Beyonce's choice of Givenchy to show off her post-baby body at this year's Met Gala (the sheer overlay is todie), I wish the fitted slip matched her skin tone better. Up close, it made the gown look a little less haute couture and a little more last minute-chic.
Still, you better believe Beyonce is at the top of my list for best dressed at the 2012 Met Gala -- girl just gave birth not six months ago and she's walking a red carpet half-naked! You couldn't get me to wear a sheer dress six months after I have a food baby, for god sake.
What did you think of Beyonce's dramatic look, compliments of Givenchy? Better yet, do you think she really gave birth to Blue Ivy? My money's on no.
