Costume Institute Gala 2008

The Costume Institute Gala is second only to The Oscars for whatwasshethinking? fashion rubbernecking. Just as interesting as who wore what is figuring out why some people were invited in the first place (Sarah Silverman? Really?) This year's celebration doesn't disappoint, there are some high marks (I think Thandie Newton and Zoe Kravitz look great) but the lows are out in full force as well. Anna Wintour's get up makes me crave a plate of escargot baked in tinfoil for some reason...

considering this year's theme, i think Kimora BROUGHT IT. there wereso many safe and boring dresses. kudos also to Joy Bryant, Zoe Kravitz (I LOVE THIS GIRL), Kate Bosworth, and the dark queen Anna Wintour. It's the COSTUME INSTITUTE people should have more fun with it. Geez!
