to whoever say there's too much random people in there, i agree, what does ashanti has to do there?!
she's so vulgar and it pisses me off that her agent or whoever is behind her is trying to make her look fashionable taking her to galas, fashion shows, etc......it wouldnt surprise me to see her in the cover of Vogue any of these days .

you must remember that invitations to these events are not only based on celebrity...if you (or your record company, etc.) donate a lot of money to the museum you are almost guaranteed access to these events...it's one of the main ways they raise funds...anna wintour is smart to have popular celebrities like ashanti there because it means that the event gets publicity in more than JUST fashion magazines.

celebrity has long since replaced society in this country....

well...you might be right, but to me, the event (apart from donations) is about people with style... , i want to think it's that way otherwise, i'd close my eyes next year Anna Nicole Smith steps into that place cause she's a celebrity and has enough money to donate.

Overall, I didn't really like what people wore. I did think that Gemma Ward and Ahn Duong were both elegant. Here are my views on some of the other attendees:

Anna Wintour-I would have loved it if the jacket didn't have that silly pouf at the bottom

JLO-her lipstick was two bright and that fur stole with the tails was horrid

Anne Heche was scary

Scarlett Johanssen-this is the third absolutely horrid dress I have seen her in recently. She needs a better stylist. The color did not flatter her and it fit wrong. In one photo she looks pregnant.

Charlize's dress was beautiful-I hated the fur stole. It was too much.

I honestly don't think pale blondes should wear gold dresses. It usually doesn't work. (note to Renee )

Eva Mendes' dress was pretty but I hated the fur wrap. It didn't go with the dress at all.

Natalie Portman-her dress looked cheap compared to most of the others.

Carine Roitfeld-why does she always look like either an alcoholic or heroin addict??

Stella McCartney- dress was OK. Her hair looked like she had slept on it though.

N.E.R.D.-those guys should have stayed home. They didn't even make an effort.

ALT- what can I say.. he's ALT

Daria Werbowy and Erin Wasson, both in Valentino couture.



Carolyn Murphy, in Gucci, with Harry Winston jewelry; Karen Elson, in Alexander McQueen; and Gemma Ward, in Rochas.



Olivier Theykens and Bea Shaffer, in Rochas.



Paris Vogue's Carine Roitfeld, in Helmut Lang.

These were some of my favorite looks of the evening. Karen Elson and Carolyn Murphy They both look amazing. Carine always looks cool, IMO. Daria and Erin both look great. Don't know who's with Olivier....never noticed it before, but he's kinda cute!

People who looked good:

1. Natalie Portman in Stella McCartney - Gorgeous and unexpected.

2. Karolina Kurkova - Her black gown outshines Charlize Theron's.

3. Plum Sykes in Alexander McQueen - Regal and unexpected.

4. Stella McCartney - She needs to put more beautiful & practical stuff like this on the runway.

Honorable mention: Mandy Moore.

The Costume Institute Gala has become a contest for celebs/socialites/models to wear the most elaborate/couture gowns they can find. It's painful to see how nearly all of them fail.

The only one I know of out of these three pics is Karolina Kurkova. The first two are Olivia Chantecaille and Lauren Davis. I think these three plus Charlize Theron were very well dressed.

I would love to know why Vera Wang never dresses with any umph. She likes to wear somewhat revealing pieces but she doesn't have a great body. Ya know? Designers are supposed to know how to dress for thier body, right?
