A lot of people refer to this event as the "Oscars of the East Coast", but the Costume Institution Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Arts in New York is every year's see-or-be-seen event that every celebrity MUST mark their calendar for! The Gala is one of New York's biggest fund raising night every year, which this year, came up to a whopping 5.4 million dollars!!!!! Vogue is one of the biggest sponsors and this year Alexander McQueen was one of the party's underwriters.
I have chosen a few of, in my opinion, this year's best dressed!
The lovely Nicole Richie in her stunning Jason Wu gown!
Natural beauty, singer, Janelle Monae, left her tux at home and wowed in this silk, embellished jumpsuit.
There was and still is a lot of controversy around Beyonce's Givency sequenced, see-through gown. I loved it! King B looked fab showing off her post-baby body!
Chanel Iman looked gorgeous as always in her Tom Ford gown.
Rihanna, also in Tom Ford, stayed true to herself in an alligator skin inspired, backless black gown.
Scarlett Johansson, one of my favorite actresses, looked simply amazing in this Dolce & Gabbana original.
Last, but certainly not least, my new found fashion inspiration, another natural beauty, Solange Knowles was FIEEERRRCEEEE in a Rachel Roy canary yellow gown!!
Until next time, Stay Classy!
