“who are you wearing?”

Hurrah, the fashion event of the year! Much like the Oscars but with the emphasis fully on the gowns and no one pretending they’re into the films when the only movie they’ve seen in the past year was Gnomeo & Juliet. Every A-list fashionista worth their salt seems to totter out of the woodwork in sky-high Loubs to attend the MET Costume Institute Gala, and this year’s line-up was a corker. After the triumph of The Dress (day four, still missing the wedding), the gala honoured late designer Alexander McQueen with an exhibition dedicated entirely to his designs. Unsurprisingly there was many a dedication on the red carpet too, as showcased by Gisele “it’s easy to look this good after having a baby” Bundchen and Salma Hayek. Here are my picks from the gazillions of stars in attendance… but no Posh? It’s like Christmas with no Santa. She better have a good excuse.

Were there any stand-outs for you?
