The Stars Shine Bright at NY Met Gala

The fashion world has been abuzz this week with news of the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute's annual gala, which this year celebrated the role of the model as muse throughout the American fashion landscape. Long considered one of the most important and certainly most talked-about fashion events of the year, the gala attracts both modern and veteran celebrities of a wide variety of talents. Monday night's extravaganza drew memorable faces from Marissa Tomei to Kate Hudson to Rihanna, with scores of big names sweeping the cameras off their feet in between. Though the costumes at this venerable masquerade are historically a bit ostentatious and fully indulgent in all the frills and fancy cuts that can be stirred into an outfit, this year's focus on models seems to have brought the procession of fashion statements into outright overdrive (and you can check out paparazzi pics to your heart's content here).
Colors were free and vibrant, representing all shades of the rainbow and bursting from the seams with tailoring that spanned from sleek and subtle to truly outrageous. As is to be expected with an event so highly anticipated by fashion designers and the famous women who love to parade in their imaginative duds, evening gowns were aplenty. The red carpet positively swirled with designs that would melt the heart of any little girl and catch the eye of anyone with an appreciation for the beauty of the female form. Highlights included a dreamy, whipped-up ball gown in champagne tones of silk, tulle, and organza, with a fully-trained skirt fluttering with whimsical flowers, shown off by Elizabeth Hurley's ever-enrapturing figure. Singer Madonna caused quite the commotion in her teal and indigo affair, sporting a playful short dress and matching rabbit ears, offset by killer thigh-high heels.

Victoria Beckham, a favorite of British fashion, showed up in a short silk affair of faint pink with black polka dots, culminating in a sweeping train over her right shoulder. The same structure, made truly marvelous in a silvery, flowing fabric, enrobed supermodel Kate Moss as she posed with designer Marc Jacobs; her look was completed with a matching turban. And speaking of accessories, the night's glimpses of costume jewelry were just as spectacular as the clothes themselves. In contrast with many recent fashion events around the globe, including seasonal fashion weeks, the Met's big night held nothing back in terms of size, color, and quantity. Jessica Alba's enormous and lovely emerald diamond drop earrings got cameras clicking, as did Eva Longoria's substantial diamond-studded chain necklace, creating some visual interest with the negative spaces of her slinky black dress.

The official title of the event, “Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion,” was certainly echoed in the expressions of the designers and guests at Monday night's affair. Suggesting that the fashion industry is just as creative and full of classic charm as ever, the gala is ripe for inspiring new generations.
