Costume Institute Gala 2010: red carpet fashion

04May10

New York played host to the most fashionable red carpet of the year last night as fashion and entertainment’s finest names came out to celebrate the opening of The Metropolitan Museum’s new spring exhibition, American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity.

This year the event was co-chaired by Patrick Robinson, creative director of Gap (which also sponsored the event), and Oprah Winfrey alongside American Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.

Inspired by this year’s exhibition theme, Gap invited past and present CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winners – including Alexander Wang, Sophie Theallet and Thakoon – to create gowns for the gala. Jessica Alba stepped out in a specially designed Theallet look, Kirsten Dunst in a Rodarte dress and Zoe Kravitz in a specially-designed Alexander Wang creation.

Meanwhile, Sarah Jessica Parker shimmered in a Champagne shade of Halston Heritage, Anne Hathaway went for a fairytale Valentino frock, Diane Kruger opted for Calvin Klein and Emma Watson worked a custom-made Burberry dress.
