2010 MET Costume Institute Gala : The American Woman

"DRESS YOU UP: Gap, which is sponsoring the “American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity” exhibit, will be dressing quite a number of celebrities at Monday night’s kick-off Costume Institute benefit. The chain and its executive vice president of global design, Patrick Robinson, collaborated with several young designers to create eveningwear for the occasion. M.I.A. and Zoë Kravitz are stated to come to the Met in Alexander Wang for Gap; Kirsten Dunst and Jamie Bochert will wear Rodarte for Gap; Kerry Washington and Riley Keough will sport Thakoon for Gap, and Sophie Theallet for Gap will be worn by Jessica Alba and Vera Farmiga. Gap is offering the eight dresses in a silent auction at gap.com/gownauction from May 4 to 31 with proceeds benefiting the Costume Institute. Two days after the party, Gap will start showcasing the dresses at its pop-up store at 680 Fifth Avenue. The shop will also offer special Gap T-shirts inspired by the themes in the Costume Institute exhibit."

I find it a bit strange that Gap, known for their casuals and basics look, were dressing many celebrities for the Met Ball. But who cares, it gives us plenty of opportunity to admire some amazing dresses that I could only ever dream of being able to wear
