Maggie Q’s Soft Beige Floral Tadashi Shoji Dress For Met Gala 2011

  • Pin it

Since I started talking about soft beiges, it’s time I brought in Maggie Q. For she was a stunning appearance at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute 2011 Gala! Her strapless soft beige floral dress from Tadashi Shoji is purely charming (that counts as reason no. one and the second is Maggie being Nikita from the now very en vogue TV Series, which, coincidentally, is one of my Adored Husband’s favorites. wink).

Soft, sweet and lovely, Maggie was one of those tone down beauties, a far cry from the inviting Savage theme, but we have to take what’s offered to us, instead of dreaming that everyone wore McQueen in an obvious homage to Lee’s sartorial genius. Wasn’t she beautiful? (photos via 1, 2)

Also a lovely dress. I can’t pull off the nude colour. Would love to but alas. So this is a fave of Adored Husband? Hmm, if this show ever enters the Netherlands I shall pay attention since we often like the same shows. :)
A pity her shot is a bit unlucky with that apron fabric dress behind her don’t you think? How savage!!

Oh, that’s Carolina Herrera, I think, behind her ;)

It’s not too demanding, it’s entertaining. I remember critics saying that an episode of (the new) Nikita is like a Michael Bay movie minus the explosions ;)

I tried watching it too, but I fell asleep, so I’m not much of a Nikita advocate! I remember Ellington having asked about another TV series she watched and enjoyed – another one my Adored Husband watches and loves too. I forgot the name… It shall come back to me, I’m sure!

i like Maggie Q, and she looks lovely in her gown.
Nikita is a rather nifty show, I enjoy it too, more so than the one with Peta Wilson.

So much better, yes! Maggie too is so different than Peta was! (I sometimes find it hard to believe that she’s impersonating a high level spy, overly trained in combat and so forth!)
