Runway To Retail: The Met's Costume Institute Gala

The stars were out on Monday night and we're not talkin' about the sky. At the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala the theme was Superheroes so it's no surprise the guests themselves brought their super human powers. As in their A-list game, their fashionista swirl, their runway twirl. While George Clooney and Julia Roberts arrived in style, onlookers were mesmerized by Katie Holmes Armani dress with bright blue shoes. Giselle and Tom's red carpet arrival caught onlookers attention as did the dazzling guests. Anyone who's anyone in Hollywood and Gotham alike make sure they attend this event, a black-tie dinner. This year's fete was no exception: raising $7.4 million. With tables ranging in price from $75,000 to $250,000 guests enjoyed their entertainment (provided by the cast of Hair) and dinner which was inspired by Spider-Man, Iron Man and Dark Knight.
