Hundreds of stars turned out in stunning fashion (literally and figuratively) for the 2017 Costume Institute Benefit for the Metropolitan Museum of Art, more popularly known as the Met Gala, on Monday night. This year’s theme was “Rei Kawabuko/Comme des Garcons: Art of the In-Between.”
Of course, it wouldn’t have been much of a party without some of our favorite Hamptonites; from a bold Madonna to the always-ethereal Olsen twins, East End representation was looking good. Curiously, fashionista Sarah Jessica Parker was not at this year’s gala—it turns out she missed the event for the first time since 2010 in order to work on her HBO show Divorce. Check out which Hamptons faves attended the annual event, and see what they wore.
Water Mill’s Jennifer Lopez was looking beautiful in this flowing, light blue Valentino gown.
Amagansett’s Gwyneth Paltrow went pretty in pink with this sleek Calvin Klein by Appointment dress. If it looks familiar, that’s because Paltrow wore a different version of the very same dress to her first Met Gala in 1995. As she readied herself for the evening, the goop goddess posted a picture on Instagram of her wearing the original dress in 1995, adding the telling hashtag #FullCircleMomentComingUp. This was Paltrow’s first appearance at the event since she swore she’d never go again back in 2013.
In spaghetti straps and feathers, Montauk’s Julianne Moore also wore Calvin Klein by Appointment and Chopard jewelry.
Bridgehampton’s Madonna wore this camouflage number by Moschino. The pop queen also wore a shawl made of camouflage netting.
Montauk’s Naomi Watts, pictured here with Amagansett homeowner Stella McCartney and Kate Hudson, wore a plunging black dress with sparkle mesh by McCartney, who also wore one of her own chic, but more modest, designs.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen stood out from the crowd with their highly original lace ensembles.
Lena Dunham wore this striking gown by Elizabeth Kennedy. You can’t see it here, but Dunham also wore a gold “PP” pin to show her support for Planned Parenthood, which she says is under attack from the Trump administration. The Girls star showed off the pin and the message: Details #plannedparenthood ???? in a closeup photo on her Instagram.
Huma Abedin wore this elegant dark blue dress with tiered ruffles.
Hamptons vacationers Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss looked sharp with their colorful tuxes.
Kim Kardashian looked surprisingly understated in this simple and sheer Vivienne Westwood Couture white slip dress. She wore little in the way of accessories, including her conspicuously missing fashion fan husband, Kanye West. She told People her hubby has “been taking some time off and really loving that.”
