The Costume Institute Gala: “The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion”

After the most disappointing Oscar red carpet in my memory, I’m looking for jaw-dropping moments from the ladies walking red carpet at the Costume Institute Gala tonight.

Last year Gisele Bündchen had me picking my jaw off the floor, and Camille Belle’s Armani gown, was so perfect, it was my Best Dressed of the Year.

This years honorary chair is Marc Jacobs. His co-chairs are Kate Moss, Justin Timberlake, and Anna Wintour.

You know what that means. Jessica ‘Bland’ Biel has already booked her place on my Worst Dressed list. Can you believe she was named Revlon’s new brand ambassador?

Some of you may wish to find out later on night who’s wearing which designer, but if you are dying to know now, Fashionologie has an up-to-date list.

I will be blogging as the pictures come in, so check back later to see who made the best and worst lists.

If you want to see what we could be in store for tonight, take a look back at last years event.

    Then to top it off, she (Jessica) is wearing William Rast. I predict it won’t be good! Haha.

    Jessica ‘bland’ Biel! Haha! She doesn’t even have business being there, only because of Justin. :/

    I was hoping Cameron Diaz would attend but she doesn’t appear to be on the list. :/

    Can’t wait for this event. I was counting down the days to the gala and totally dying to see what my faves are gonna wear. I’m pissed at Riccardo Tisci because he’s not gonna dress Lakshmi, but instead he wanted to dress Adriana Lima, who’ll star in the new campaign. I couldnt believe it! Thankfully Lakshmi is going with Rachel Roy: two beautiful women who, i’m sure, will look amazing. Galliano’s choice of dressing Gisele kinda let me down..but i’m happy Liya, Jourdan and Anja are attending. I’m also really looking forward to see Kerry Washington and Diane Kruger..and, oddly, Ciara. We’ll see ^^ I’m sure that later i’ll be checking every single minute ^-^
    Thank you so much for covering the event FC, impeccable as always ^^

    Is there a theme for this year’s event?

  17. Fashion Critic May 4, 2009 at 17:16 #

    Of course, they are all my favourites too.

    The problem with these types of events is that they do two waves of photos. The bigger names are in the first wave, then models, designers and others in the second.

    That how it happened last year. So don’t worry if you don’t see them tonight, I will check for new additions in the morning.

    Oh God! I hope someone wears something worthwhile. It feels like it’s been ages since someone truly blew my away.
