The Met's Costume Institute Gala: The Models

The Met's Costume Institute Gala: The Models

Last night's theme at the 2009 Costume Institute Gala was "The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion," an exploration of how models have inspired and projected fashions throughout recent years. Of course, my coverage of this event would not be complete without a gallery of models who walked the red carpet. (Here's why some big names didn't show up). Oh, and if you're looking for more model action, check out my slideshow of the big six models, full of "then and now" photos. Don't forget to vote on all of my Costume Institute Gala polls here!
