Red carpet wrap-up: The Met Costume Insitute Gala

Sadly, awards season is over.  Or, as I like to call it, pretty pretty dress season.  But, lucky for us, the Met hosts an annual event just for that!  I have no idea what happens at the Costume Institute Gala.  I don't know what it's for.  I just know that everyone always shows up looking awesome (or, at least trying to look awesome).  And that, for a dress fiend like me, is awesome.

NYMag seems to have by far the most comprehensive slideshow, and the fabulous Fug Girls breaking down the ten weirdest looks.
People's got a gallery.  Gwen Stefani looked amazing.  Tina Fey wore a jumpsuit.  Anne Hathaway looked radiant, but strangely plastic.  Kristen Stewart was a no.  Renee loves her fishtail hems, but looked fresh and happy.  Maggie Gyllenhaal is now Helena Bonham Carter?  Katy Perry's dress had lights.  Eva Longoria Parker wants you to check out her train.

TLo has part 1 of their "fabulous and opinionated" critiques, with side-by-side runway comparisons (see above).  They no like Tina.  And they promised a part 2 and 3 last night on twitter! [They're here!  And here!]

More to come!  I'll update as more people put up their posts!  [Here you are: Jezebel has the good, bad, and ugly, but they also wonder why all the outfits were so boring.  The Fug Girls are having at it, and it ain't pretty.]
