First things first, Sarah Jessica Parker delivered - once again. Being a co-host of the event she was one of the early guests to arrive, dressed in a dramatic custom-made Oscar de la Renta gown that carried the designer's signature in red on the train. Adorning the look with a double chignon and opera gloves, the fashion superstar oozed every bit of the old Hollywood glamour that was expected. Not far behind on the theme were this year's supermo-dels - plus Kendall Jenner, generally decked out in Zac Posen or Topshop, who also embodied the spirit of the exhibition thanks to the tireless guidance of Vogue's team.
Unfortunately other celebrities weren't as lucky. Aside from a few themed efforts that paid off, such as Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's vintage getups, Amy Adams' de la Renta number and Zoe Saldana's contemporary gown by Michael Kors, the rest was as lazy as it gets. The red carpet saw a ton of minimal - borderline boring - column dresses in trendy colors, rarely "sprinkled" with jewels. Both Emma Stone and Diane Kruger disappointed, the former opting for a pink Thakoon gown consisting
of a crop top and a wrap-skirt and the latter wearing a baby blue number by Hugo Boss, while fashion darling Lupita Nyong'o took a 20s Prada flapper risk that left everyone confused.
