She's so fancy, but you already know...
After last year's
disastrous cutting edge punk party, the Costume Institute Met Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, co-chaired by Vogue's Anna Wintour, took on a more refined air this year with the "White Tie and Decorations" theme. Celebs and models alike came to the event dressed in the best of the best couture but probably left a little lighter in the pockets as tickets start at $25,000.
Before hitting the red carpet, the pretty faces and bold names strutted their stuff outside The Mark Hotel, the traditional pre-Met Gala party spot. Here's a look at what Anna, Posh and Becks, Bradley Cooper (another co-chair!) and our girl crush Lupita Nyong'o were wearing last night.
Bradley Cooper goes literal with the "White tie" theme.
Posh and Becks keep it, well, Posh and Becks style.
We heart everything about this picture. She can do no wrong.
While the tickets to the Met are out of your price range, the rooms at The Mark are "only" $695 a night for a superior queen room.

Tonight's the night for New York Metropolitan Museum's star-studded, Met Ball. This year's theme is "Punk: Chaos to Couture".
An A-list crowd will be dressed in their finest frocks and suits and descend up the red carpet of the museum's steps to enter what can only be described as the fashion party of the year.
One such bold name will be Vogue's own editrix, Anna Wintour, seen departing from The Mark in a pink floral custom-made Chanel number and sporting her trademark bob.
If you want to a live stream of all the couture wear and stars (Katie Holmes is wearing Calvin Klein), just go to Vogue's website. It'll also be simultaneously streamed on the websites of Moda Operandi, Samsung, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

A bearded Russell Crowe waltzes off to his uptown hotel...
So far, we've brought you Sandy-related reports on pressing matters like price gouging, the Park Hyatt's rogue crane and the surge in hotel cancellations. But moving on to the real question on everyone's mind: how have celebs managed to cope since Sandy hit the Big Apple?
Quite well, as a matter of fact. While plenty of downtown New Yorkers were busy digging out candles from kitchen cabinets and wearing blankets to compensate for lack of heating (actually, some downtown hotel guests were doing the same thing), a flock of A-listers were ditching their power-less TriBeCa, SoHo and Greenwich Village apartments for a plush uptown refuge, where the electricity flows like honey and the shoe shine kiosk stays open all night long.*
Yup, we're talking about The Mark.
Behind on your Vogue reading? We were, too, but after a binge-read session of the fashion bible we now know about all sorts of thousand-dollar purses and platform wedges.
We also have a better idea of where Anna Wintour and her acolytes like to vacation. Forget your standard five-star hotel chains—they simply won't do. Here are three of the latest hotels that got the Vogue stamp of approval. Got your Hermes luggage ready to go?
But Anna...we have a feeling you already knew that. For Roger Federer fans who haven't been fortunate enough to get courtside seats at all of his matches or throw him a party at the Gramercy Park Hotel, the object of your affection is staying at the Carlyle Hotel on the Upper East Side.
For Four Seasons employees this is quite a shock. We hear that Swiss tennis god Roger always stays at Four Seasons but this time people kept recommending the Carlton (maybe Anna had a hand in this too?) So he switched his reservation and is staying on the same floor as the hotel's general manager, James McBride, who has an apartment there. Now, Anna knows where to get an extra key.
