Gwyneth Paltrow Praises the Met Ball

Gwyneth Paltrow at this year's Met GalaGwyneth Paltrow has praised the Met Ball.

Although the 40-year-old actress recently slammed the Costume Institute Gala, which took place at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art earlier this month, she wrote a gushing post about it in her lifestyle newsletter Goop.

"The Met Ball, at NYC's Metropolitan Museum of Art, is always the year's most elaborate display of incredible fashion and this year was no different. The theme was Punk: Chaos to Couture and when the house of Valentino's Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri asked me to join them, I was thrilled to see what they would create with my right fashion hand, Elizabeth Saltzman. We got all inspired in the goop office about punk making a comeback through subtle influence and thus, we asked one of my absolute favorite websites, the most excellently curated SSENSE, to show us how we could work it into our spring/summer wardrobes (sic)," she wrote.

Kanye West’s ‘Screeching’ Angers Met Ball Bosses

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Rumors

Kim Kardashian and Kanye WestKanye West irritated Met Ball organizers by "screeching" through his performance.

The "All of the Lights" rapper - who was accompanied to the star-studded annual Costume Institute Gala in New York City on Monday by his pregnant fiancee Kim Kardashian - was one of the musical stars who took the stage at the event, but left organizers and guests scratching their heads by playing several unfamiliar tracks from his new album.

Kanye, who was sporting a bejewelled mask, began his set after Blondie performed some of their most popular tracks, and "started screaming" according to one onlooker. "He played all new tracks that no one knew from his new album, and none of the crowd favorites. His songs were basically screeching into the microphone," the source added to the New York Post newspaper.

Another guest suggested the controversial musician's strange performance would have not been part of the plan for the A-list event. "Every minute of that gala is programmed, and Kanye went off-program and played whatever he wanted," the reveler said.

Rachel Zoe Spent Sleepless Nights Over Karolina Kurkova’s Met Ball Dress

Karolina KurkovaRachel Zoe spent sleepless nights over the Met Ball dress she designed for Karolina Kurkova.

Model Karolina stunned critics at the prestigious event in New York last week in a custom-made sequinned gold gown from the Rachel Zoe Collection, but the designer admits she was very nervous beforehand.

"I spent a lot of nights dreaming about what I wanted it to look like. Long sleeves, a very low back and a high neck were all musts for the dress, but the much-talked about headpiece was a last-minute addition. It happened literally the day before. 'What can I add to really take it to the next level?' So we made the turban-slash-head-wrap to give it that deco-glamour that [Elsa] Schiaparelli was so known for," said Rachel, who is a stylist to the stars.

Karolina, 28, walked the red carpet in the floor-length bodycon number at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala with 40-year-old Rachel, who wore a white dress from Commes des Garcons.
