The Costume Institute Gala certainly seemed to live up to it's reputation as fashion party of the year (I know it is only May, but I have never seen so many fashionable people under one roof, and doubt that such a sight will be repeated this year... fingers crossed though). I was glad to see so much Burberry and Alexander McQueen on the red carpet- appropriate of course, given that the theme of the night was AngloMania, and Burberry's Christopher Bailey was cohosting. Although there were a number of well dressed actresses and designers in attendance (many of whom arrived on each other's arms), the stunners for me were the models...
Other favourites included: Liv Tyler's noir CK goddess gown, Scarlet Johansson's sequinned Stella McCartney dress, Kate Moss's Burberry pantsuit, Rosario Dawson's silver J. Mendel and Michelle Monaghan's bronze number. Many more pictures can be seen here.
