The brightest stars of the Met Ball 2012

The annual Met Ball celebrates the opening of the Metropolitan Museum's fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute. Many celebrities have been spotted lighting up the red carpet in their finest creations, therefore making it hard for people to get their eyes off them even for a second. What I have prepared for you is the list of my 10 favourite looks of the night. Let the show begin!

#10 Sarah Jessica Parker stepped out on the red carpet wearing a floral Valentino gown from the spring/summer 2012 couture collection paired with matching shoes. I am crazy about floral print and for whatever reason this photo conjures up the image of a princess in my head. I love how she updated the look with gold cuffs.

#9 Anja Rubik went for a white gown with cutouts by Anthony Vaccarello and paired it with a Kotur clutch. Even I was surprised to see that this outfit made it to my top 10 list. If another celebrity turned up at the event wearing this piece, I would probably disregard their choice calling it too daring or even cheap. Even though Anja is undoubtedly too skinny, she can turn the ugliest pieces into something eye-catching.

#8 Sofia Vergara looked ladylike in a silver embellished Marchesa gown, showing off her wonderful body. What deserves appreciation is the fact that she didn't overkill with accessories and decided to finish off her look with silver earrings, bangles and a natural hairstyle.

#7 Lana Del Rey hit the red carpet wearing a silver sequined Joseph Altuzarra gown with a black cape around her shoulders. Her outfit is the combination of a vampire princess and Little Red Riding Hood gone bad. The designer himself exclaimed that it's 'the embodiment of her music' and I have to say there is something really enigmatic about this look.

#6 Cate Blanchett kicked off the night in an Alexander McQueen autumn/winter 2012/13 black feathered gown. I love how the feathers make a seemingly simple dress stand out. If anyone claims that black has to be boring, then they clearly haven't seen this creation. You can never go wrong with this versatile colour and Cate is living proof.

#5 Heidi Klum is one of the people who never cease to amaze me- having given birth to 4 children and gotten closer to the magical 40, she still has an enviable figure and looks stunning whenever she is spotted in public. This time she went for a gunmetal grey lace gown by Escada and had 'classy' written all over her.

#4 Emma Stone sparkled in a red satin dress with embroidered flowers made by Alber Elbaz for Lanvin, paired with crystal hair pins and black leather pumps. I believe that the dress goes along really nicely with her petite figure and pale complexion, making Emma look absolutely endearing.

#3 Dianna Agron stunned on the red carpet in her Carolina Herrera gown teamed with 19th century sapphire ring set by Fred Leighton, Sergio Rossi heels and a Judith Leiber clutch. She added a dose of feminine whimsy with her romantic smokey eye make-up and soft retro waves.

#2 Jourdan Dunn (on the right, the photo was taken before the event) was gracing the red carpet in her floor-length Burberry Prorsum gown. She complemented her darling look with a matching clutch. Dear Jourdan, if you feel like you don't need the gown after last night's event, you know where to find me- my closet would give it an exceptionally warm welcome. Just saying.

#1 And the winner is... ladies and gentlemen, Scarlett Johansson. She brought the glamour in a figure-flattering Dolce & Gabbana gown with full tulle skirt and Fred Leighton jewels. The dress looks as if it was made specifically for her- she was showing off her amazing curves to perfection and turning heads throughout the whole event.

Who, in your opinion, rocked the red carpet last night and who should've tried harder? Feel free to drop me a line in comments!
