WOW.

That is pretty much all I can say with regards to Karolina Kurkova's jaw-dropping sparkle creation at the 2012 Met Gala. Custom-made by Rachel Zoe (yep, the Zoestar!) Karolina in all her statuesque glory looked like a real-life Academy Award figurine in the floor-length golden design.

The rose gold sequin number included long sleeves, a high neck, open back and matching turban. Attending the event alongside Rachel, Karolina also brought with her a clutch made from similar material and her hands were covered in giant gold rings. Along with Christina Ricci's Met Gala outfit by Thakoon, this has to be one of the most memorable looks of the night and very much what another supermodel Iman might wear.

Yes, it's over-the-top, yes it's very exotic-lands-meets-1920s-glamour but in the words of Rachel Zoe "I DIE!"

What are your thoughts on Karolina's choice of Met Gala dress? Is it perfect for such an occasion or is it best left on the Rachel Zoe's design studio floor? Share your thoughts with us below.
