The event is inspired by models- why I do not know. But Vogue editor Anna Wintour  hosted the gala (again) this year. “The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion” exhibit opened and the gala helped kick that off. Supermodel Kate Moss co-chaired the event along with singer Justin Timberlake. The event allows for long dresses – and some very short ones too- to be paired with even longer legs and handsome escorts. Ah.

Rihanna made her first major red carpet appearance since her ex-looser-of-a-boyfriend, Chris Brown beat her. She arrived without him, thankfully. In this very interesting, “only Rihanna could get away with wearing this” tuxedo from Dolce & Gabbana – I think the tuxedo is so ugly, it’s beautiful. Her blue eyeshadow also perfectly contrasted her skintone and lipliner… I love it.

Shalom Harlow’s odd dress reminded me of Rihanna’s tuxedo above:

I was impressed with Ashley Olsen who wore a simple, white gown from her own (and twin sister Mary-Kate’s) line, The Row:

and I really do feel that Madonna needs to realize she’s about 80 years old. Her outfit was designed by Louis Vuitton and it’s complete with bunny ears and gloves. It’s hideous. I guess I should encourage her behavior. I mean, how many women can say they are that fit and bold at her age or mine? Not many :)
