Of course, we loved the all-pink Valentino look above, as worn by the iconic Glenn Close, seen here accompanied by the Maison's creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli. Women always look amazing in this kind of bright, joyous pink and the stylish Close wore her hair cut and coloured just right for Piccioli's creation.
Then there was Kim K., wearing Marilyn Monroe's legendary "happy birthday, Mr. President" naked looking shimmering dress designed by American designer Bob Mackie. The reality star lost 7 kg. to fit into Monroe's shoes, sported platinum blond hair and walked the red carpet with partner Pete Davidson.
And the Hadid sisters didn't disappoint either, Bella in all black bondage Burberry, and her older sister Gigi in a Versace bodysuit with matching puffy coat complete with train.
Of course, we can't forget those style twins Jared Leto and Gucci's Alessandro Michele, wearing matching suits by the Italian maison, complete with matching man purses, long locks and a rhinestone barrette.
Last but definitely not least among this year's attendees were Tesla billionaire Elon Musk and his supermodel mom Maye. Musk admitted during the event that he's got big plans for Twitter, which he's in the process of buying for a reported $44 billion. Ms. Musk wore a signature micro Lady Dior handbag to complete her elegant look.
Rihanna was MIA, as she's super pregnant and ready to give birth any day, we hear. And also missing on the red, white and blue carpet, a tribute the exhibition's star, the United States of America, were some great Arab designers. Now that would have made the evening complete, especially since the gala this year fell on the first Monday in May, as it always does, but also on the first night of Eid al-Fitr.
And of course, we couldn't forget Oscar Isaac in a Thom Browne tux ensemble, once again wearing a skirt! Although, we nearly forgot and we apologize. But here it is! And Isaac is accompanied by his Danish filmmaker wife, Elvira Lind, who is styled to perfection next to her hubby.
