The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion was the theme of the Costume Institute Gala at the MET this year. The model mania began with Kate Moss, a co-host to year,  who arrived on the arm of Marc Jacobs. As one of the most glamourous and highly anticipated fashion events of the year, this is a red carpet is harder to navigate than Anna Wintour’s blackberry. This year Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, Kate Bosworth, Madonna and Victoria Beckham were just a handful of hopefuls to get entry into the super glam party that kicks off the Costume Institute’s Goddess exhibit. . So who got the worst and best dressed awards last night? See for yourelf. Here’s a few looks that caught our eye for your viewing pleasure.


Justin Timberlake wore a William Rast suit (ahem and some glasses ?) while his gal Jessica Biel wore red Versace.

In The Devila Wears Prada it was  Meryl Streep, but in real life it’s Anna Wintour. Here she is in the flesh wearing Chanel Couture.


A little disappointed in this ensemble on Karolina Kurkova wearing a dress by Richard Chai. If anyone has a body to flaunt a unique and interesting dress it’s this gal.

It’s Leonardo DiCaprio’s girl, Bar Refaeli in Marchesa. We love Marchesa. We like this dress. We like it alot. evamendes

Breathtaking. Stunning. Gorgeous. The always pretty Eva Mendes in Calvin Klein, with Francisco Costa.


Our favorite newlyweds Tom Brady & Gisele Bundchen looking utterly gorgeous in Versace in our favorite color…blue!

madonna Bizarre, weird, random. Call it what you will, we have to give Madonna points for originality wearing this interesting choice by Louis Vuitton.


Really Kate, when are you going to do another movie? Kate Bosworth playing it safe  in Stella McCartney.


Elizabeth Hurley looked like a true member of royalty in Elie Saab Couture.

rihanna_topRihanna made quite an appearance while doing the stylish-male look in her girl-friendly tux. 



It’s a Stella McCartney ad dying to happen: Kate Hudson, Stella McCartney, Liv Tyler, Kate Bosworth weairing who else? Stella McCartney.


Diane Kruger looking prim and proper in Chanel.


Ashley Olsen draped in Christian Lacroix.


Her sis, Mary Kate Olsen, wore a very different dress by the same designer.


Fashion icons as far as we’re concerned: Donatella & Cindy, no last names needed….


Kanye West doing the James Bond pose with his girlfriend on the red carpet.

  2. Tom and Giselle look amazing. Ashely Olsen is much too small and too young to wear that draping dress.
