Costume Institute Gala 2009

The Costume Institute Gala held annually in New York is one my favourite fashion events… Unlike the Oscars where the stars seem to go super-safe for fear of ending up on the Worst Dressed list, there are an awful lot of pretty crazy and out-there fashion choices.

Here are Kate Moss and Marc Jacobs… and what’s that on her head?
Yes, it’s a gold turban… 
Victoria Beckham working her usual legs out, uber-high heels…. well if you’ve got it you might as well flaunt it!
Madonna in Louis Vuitton
And Leighton Meester in an outfit that might have stepped just a bit too far into the crazy territory, although of course the zebra-print carpet isn’t helping her either….
