The Costume Institute Gala was the official fashion event of the season. Co-chairs of the event included Marc Jacobs, Kate Moss, Anna Wintour and Justin Timberlake. The Metropolitan Museum was absolutely packed out with the biggest stars known to fashion and entertainment.
No worries if you missed the Grammy's, Oscars or Emmy's because the MET steps had the most glamorous red carpet of 2009. The night was a tribute to the super model and all that is beautiful. The event kicked off with the best fashions and well, maybe the worst of the season.
The designs of choice by half the guest list included Stella McCartney, Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs and Versace. It was a night for designers to have their muses dressed to the nines in their best creations. To kick off the best dressed list Versace (Atelier) dressed my top three: Jessica Biel, Gisele Bündchen and Blake Lively. The worst of the night included Madonna, Diane Kruger and Shalom Harlow. Rachel Bilson, Elizabeth Hurley and Leighton Meester get the "Wrong Look" award.
Overall, the night was an absolute hit and despite the economy the fashion industry finally got to let loose and ignore all that is looming in the air.
