Tribeca Ball 2012 Brought Out Some Strange Style (PHOTOS)

The Tribeca Ball is one of the biggest parties of the year, bringing out guests a mix of celebs, fashion people and art types like Bill Clinton, Justin Timberlake, Rachel Roy, Fabiola Beracasa and Eileen Guggenheim (in years past).

This year, the event brought together a curious crew with some particularly curious fashion statements. There were the simple styles, like Naomi Watts in an peplumed LBD and Julianna Margulies in a sleek black gown. Then there were the glamour girls, like Jessica White dripping in gold and Carla Gugino in fire-engine red.

And then there were the surprises. We're not sure what dress code Kim Cattrall was following when she showed up looking ready for an office party, in a black pants, a white shirt and a electric blue blazer. Certainly not the same one as Helena Christensen, who donned a floral-trimmed gown with puffy short-sleeves. Between the black lace cami poking out of the neckline and her tiny shoulder-bag, something about the outfit felt very 2003.

And then there was Paz de la Huerta, who never disappoints, as well as Solange Knowles making like her sister in patterned pants.

Take a look at the eclectic group -- was there a fashion winner in the bunch?
