I picked her right away. MTV’s red carpet pre-show was a Punk’d mishmash MESS and the live-stream didn’t like my Mac so I spent the hour running up to the show browsing Getty Images while Game of Thrones played in the background (I watched these awards last night instead of the finale — don’t spoil me!) and when I came across Elizabeth:

The Met Ball is the most fun night for fashion every year. Or as the ponies would say: BEST. NIGHT. EVER. Unlike other red carpet events, the Met Ball is about fashion. Fashion takes center stage, legitimately, and so we get:
Coco Rocha as a humanized My Little Pony. Humanizing the ponies in art and cosplay is a huge part of the Pony and Brony fandom (my family is planning it for an upcoming convention ourselves). But I never expected to see it so CLEARLY on the red carpet. Basically, Coco is my fashion hero FOREVER for this.
Although she’s in Fluttershy’s colors, she’s rocking Pinkie Pie’s attitude: this is MY party. But don’t worry, I found the other ponies.

Dear Suzanne Engo. I get that you love them but Converse are not appropriate footwear when wearing a gown. Even if your gown is a Smurf-blue ripped up mess that hugs your body in all the wrong places. This is BAD. Signed, All of Us.
This is cute.
I think it might be physically impossible for Carey Mulligan to not be cute. But she could wear this Miu Miu out shopping and it wouldn’t cause a stir. I mean the pockets are especially adorable but Carey. No.
