Costume Institute Gala

So some of you may know that the Superheroe- themed Fashion & Fantasy Costume Institute Gala went down at the Metropolitan Museum of Art last night. I actually was hoping that they would air the red carpet arrivals last night but I found out that Entertainment News is going to have a show on the event Wednesday, May 8th. Not sure what time, sorry. Well I decided I had to know what some of my favorite celebrity fashionistas wore to the gala thus I searched the world wide web this morning until I found some pics to post. All I can say is that my girls represented well. I was able to find some of the designers of the dresses worn but I'll keep looking for the rest.

I'm sure I'll discover some more pics later on during the day, but these ladies by far are beautiful. Although, many did not wear gowns that complement the theme, except for Thandie, but all is forgiven. Beyonce even toned down the bling and allowed the dress to take the forefront by going with minimal accessories and hair that was pulled back away from her face. Just gorgeous! Kimora's dress was a little too colorful for my tastes but I thought she pulled it off well.
