PHOTOS: Who Were The Belles Of The Met Ball?
Monday night marked the single biggest event on fashion’s yearly calendar: The Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute Gala. The theme this year was American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity and, appropriately, focused on American style through the ages. We’ve touched on some historical icons and wondered how exactly the Gap — this year’s sponsor — was going to pull off outfitting stars for the red carpet, but the photos are up and the guests have made it past the very velvet rope, so now the fun part begins. (And if you’re feeling a little snarky, the lackluster looks can be found here.)
