The world’s most stylish fashionistas, singers, actors and hangers-on made their way to The Metropolitan Museum of Art last night for the Costume Institute’s Gala. This year the institute honored the late, great French designer Paul Poiret. Poiret’s stunning designs drew on both Oriental and art deco aesthetic, but constantly revolved around his favorite flower: the rose.
Our invitation must have gotten lost in the mail, so we had to live vicariously through press images. Shame, because we would have loved to pick Tom Ford and French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld‘s respective brains. Oh well, there’s always next year.
Take a look at some more shots, after the jump…
Christina Ricci loves to pose.

How much longer until Andre Leon Talley stops dragging Jennifer Hudson around like a plaything?
Karl Lagerfeld. Need we say more?
