The annual Costume Institute Gala is one of the most exciting and daring red carpet events of the year. This year’s event celebrated the launch of the “American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity” exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum and was co-hosted by Anna Wintour and Oprah Winfrey – two of the most powerful women in media. Designers, editors, models and entertainers walked the red carpet in everything from long sleeved dresses, metallics, barely-there minis, ruffles and gowns with thigh high slits.
