David and Victoria BeckhamVictoria and David Beckham wore matching outfits to the Met Gala in New York City last night.

The 40-year-old fashion designer and her former soccer star husband, 39, both arrived at the star-studded charity event at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art wearing cream-colored outfits and posed happily for the cameras.

The former Spice Girls star - who has four children with her spouse - wore a stunning floor length gown, while her husband, who retired from soccer last year following a stint at French club Paris Saint Germain, paired his black bow tie and trousers with a cream suit jacket. And the couple had a great time at the annual event, with Victoria later tweeting, "So much fun tonight at the #MetGala Thank u team VB, amazing dress!!! I love u all x [sic]."

Meanwhile, "Drunk in Love" singer Beyonce was seen dropping a ring she was wearing on her right hand on the red carpet. Her husband, "Holy Grail" rapper Jay Z, swooped in to pick it up and stage a fake proposal, which the mother of his 2-year-old daughter Blue Ivy happily accepted.

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.

Riccardo Tisci Defends Kim Kardashian’s Met Gala Look

Kim Kardashian and Kanye WestKim Kardashian is probably one of the most scrutinized pregnant celebrities these days, with folks all over the internet checking paparazzi photos for her latest maternity look. Her Met Gala appearance last Sunday was no exception, though I'm starting to truly believe from this red carpet look that she sparks and embraces such attention.

Dressed from neck to toe in a Givenchy floral number with matching gloves, the reality star looks like she could blend right into some tacky wallpaper or a sofa (a far cry from the party's punk theme).

But the head creative behind Givenchy, Riccardo Tisci, comes to Kim's defense, crowning her “the most beautiful pregnant woman I dressed in my career.” Not sure if that's much of an achievement, considering he doesn't seem to dress many pregnant women at all!

Tisci also explained his decision to envelop the expectant mother in roses: “To me, pregnancy is the most beautiful thing in the world, and when you celebrate something, you give people flowers.”

Coco Rocha is the New Face of Dennis Basso

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Fashion Designers, Models

Coco RochaCoco Rocha has become the new face of Dennis Basso. The stunning model will front the designer's fall/winter collection after the pair met at the QVC table at the Met Gala last month.

The 23-year-old beauty - whom Basso says he "fell in love with" after she wore a pantsuit bought at the Elizabeth Taylor auction - found herself modelling a $250,000 mink in 100-degree heat on the Essex Steam Train in Connecticut this week. According to the New York Post, Basso remarked Coco was "the only person on set not sweating."

Although the pair met at the Met Gala, Coco recently revealed she found attending the New York event more "daunting" than any other bash: "Of all the events, I have to say the Met Gala red carpet is most daunting. You have cameras on both sides of you all the way up a red-carpeted staircase. If you turn to one side, the other side boos. You really can't win. Once people learn your name they all begin screaming for you. I've made the mistake in years gone by of showing up a little late to the event, right when the Beyonces and J. Los of the world are having their moment - then you have photographers screaming for you to get out of the way! So this year I came nice and early."


Patrick Robinson Ecstatic Over Hosting Met Gala

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Fashion Shows, News

Patrick RobinsonPatrick Robinson is “honored” to be co-hosting next year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute gala.

The creative director of Gap, who will be presiding over the fashion event alongside Oprah Winfrey, is particularly taken with the event’s theme, “American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity.”

“Gap is honored to be invited by The Met to participate—supporting art and culture has always been at the heart of the brand. We are excited by the theme as this feels like a really natural fit—hopefully in our 40 years we have done just this by delivering versatile American style. I love that this exhibition speaks to how the American woman is multi-dimensional—she’s about high fashion, and she’s about everyday fashion. Which is why I’m thrilled Oprah is our co-chair for the Gala benefit as she epitomizes this versatility and has played such a significant part in shaping everything about today’s woman.”

Patrick is equally as thrilled with the way Gap’s latest collection has been received. He explained that the Pierre Hardy boots, T-shirts with silk pockets, and denim gilets are so popular the company has had to start a waiting list. Gap employees can’t get enough of the slim-fitting chinos, boyfriend shirts, and pea coats.

“Look out for our new take on the classic Gap gray sweatshirt—which I predict will be the essential easy luxe piece for 2010.”
