InstaGlam: Our Favorite Snaps From the Met Gala Red Carpet
>> The annual Costume Institute Gala's red carpet is an infamous frenzy of fashion and flashbulbs — and we were right there to capture it all. From Anna to Miuccia, Calvin to Valentino, the grand steps of the Met were jam-packed with some of the industry's most favorite faces — not to mention some of Hollywood's favorite stars. "It's always a fun night, you know? Everyone is dressed up and looks beautiful," explained Caroline Trentini, who was dressed in a denim gown designed by date Olivier Theyskens. Ginnifer Goodwin, who wore a custom Monique Lhuillier gown, shared the sentiment: "I'm excited to see so many old friends. I know that I've got a lot of buddies inside. That's what I'm most excited about," the actress said. br> "It's hugely special! What could be more important than the Costume Institute Gala? It feels like the Oscars," a Schiaparelli-pink-haired Chris Benz explained before whisking date Julie Macklowe — also sporting fuchsia locks — through the doors of the museum. br> "I think it's more fun than the Oscars!" director Baz Luhrmann — who made a series of films for the exhibit — disagreed. "Just because there are no awards. There's no stress. All I have to do is eat a little something, drink a little something, and watch Bruno Mars rock the house. That can't be too hard, you know." br> More red-carpet chats — and our Instagram snaps — right here, in the gallery.
