...is already passé.
The international who is who in the (sorry:) "entertainment" business followed the invitation to the opening event of the Metropolitan Museum's exhibition "American Women: Fashioning a National Identity" to the night of the nights for the fashion crowd: The Met Costume Institute Gala.
What lingers are the colorful celebrity pictures from the red carpet. This year the fight for the best-dressed award was hard. (Unfortunately the fight for the skinniest body award was hard as well: What happened to the Versace family?)
Kate Bosworth, in a nude but shiny Valentino dress plus matching clutch, with nicely draped retro curls is my fashion favourite on this event.
