Los Angeles, CA, United States (AHN) – The 2010 Costume Institute Gala Benefit to celebrate the opening of the “American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity” brought out more stars than the Oscars this year. A-listers from Janet Jackson to Oprah Winfrey hit the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City Monday night looking their absolute red carpet best.
Janet Jackson wore a bust-baring black Lanvin dress to the event, while Winfrey, who was co-hosting along with Vogue editor Anna Wintour and The Gap’s Patrick Robinson, wore a custom-made navy silk-organza Oscar de la Renta gown with ruffle detail.
Jennifer Lopez sported a grey tulle strapless ball gown from the Zuhair Murad Spring 2010 Couture collection. Lopez opted to completely bare-necked to show off the dress’ eye-catching silver sequin leaf print.
Anne Hathaway, who’s gone from “Princess Diaries” to the White Queen in this year’s “Alice in Wonderland,” looked absolutely regal yet again in Valentino Pre-Fall 2010. The nude embroidered tull gown was modified to an even sexier look, removing the straps to show off her neck and bust.
Chloe Sevigny made on-lookers do a double-take in her short Proenza Schouler dress. The “Big Love” star’s long-sleeved, high-neck look featured embroidered lace teal with a full short skirt, showing big personality and bigger style.
Other star looks at the gala included Sarah Jessica Parker in Halston Heritage, Kristen Stewart in Chanel, and Emma Watson in custom-made Burberry.
