André Leon Talley turned up in a voluminous cape with a great mayoral style necklace. Note the jewelled pumps, we can only dream of this trend filtering onto the high street. Next, sweet-faced Alber Elbaz, who we love as much and as unreservedly as Michelle Obama. The suit and trademark bow tie all pass muster but the clogs need to go, maybe him and Talley can go shoe-shopping together?

Now I know for a fact that I wasn’t the only one disappointed with Met Gala-attending celebrities lack of Superhero costume inspiration. In fact, Zac Posen was the only attendee who matched up to my high standards of fancy-dress. Therefore, I was delighted when I came across this River Island cap with Marvel Comic decoration (Persil, Armani, River Island- what isn’t Marvel on at the moment!) The only River Island I have ever entered outside the realm of cyber-space was in Fife, Scotland and the fact that the staff could collectively set up a tattoo and piercing parlour helped me to never return. Add to this that I was once told I don’t have a “hat-face,” I was understandably cautious of putting this on my WISHLIST. No longer shall I worry as this cap has enough Wham! Zap! Pow! to last me at least another month of pretending I could wear it.

Met Institute Costume Gala 2008: Jack White & Karen Elson, Ashley Olsen & Christian Louboutin and Zac Posen & Kate Mara
A slightly uncle Fester-esque Jack White turned up with spouse Karen Elson, who looked like a woman from a Rossetti painting with her pale skin, burgundy dress and ginger hair. Despite White’s slightly corpse-like appearance I think he looked good in his white three-button waistcoat.
Christian Louboutin went to the other end of the spectrum with an attention-grabbing badge and I have to say I love Ashley Olsen’s new look. Speaking of attention-grabbing, check out Zac Posen’s outfit after the jump.
