Photos: the modelling elite at the Costume Institute Gala 2009
The annual Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art took place in New York last night.
This year, it celebrated the ‘The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion’ so there were even more models there than normal - for example (in picture order), Agyness Deyn, Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Eva Herzigova, Gisele Bundchen, Heidi Klum, Helena Christensen, Iman, Kate Moss (see more photos of La Moss), and Miranda Kerr.
We’ve got about a gazillion photos of everyone on the red carpet - click here for the full list - but if nothing else, make sure you check out our Best Dressed selection and vote who you thought was the belle of the ball, the gal of the gala, the .. most amusing muse.
