WHO: Christina Ricci & Tom Ford

WHAT: Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala 2011 (Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Exhibit)

WHEN: MAY 2nd 2011

WHERE: NYC, USA

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: In her part costume part ball gown, Christina brought the Savage and the Beauty to the costume Gala (we believe she is wearing a Zac Posen creation) and Tom brought suave-classy-sexy to the red carpet.

Best Dressed At the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala 2011

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

WHO: Global Celebrities and Fashion Designers

WHAT: Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala 2011 (Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Exhibit)

WHEN: MAY 2nd 2011

WHERE: NYC, USA

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: This event is arguably the The “Oscars” of the Fashion World. While we are still deliberating (lots of dresses and suits to review) and while most of us are currently working on other projects simultaneously, we’ve managed to shortlist some of the best dressed celebrities from last evening’s costume gala in New York  for you our lovely and *wink*wink* very patient readers. Overall it was  a great night, some outfits were drop-dead gorgeous while some we refuse to even upload pics of, talk less of comment on. If you have nothing nice to say, it is better not to say anything at all right? As  for the celebrities shortlisted in the slideshow above, they deserve a round of applause for bringing in on the red carpet last night. A+

WHEN: May 1st 2011

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: We are not entirely in love with the way this tassle-belted jumpsuit by GUCCI fits on Ms. Pompeo but her choice of accessories and wise decision not to wear any earrings or necklace save the look. B-

WHO:  Christina Aguilera

WHAT: 2nd Annual Mary J. Blige Honors Concert

WHEN: May 1st 2011

WHERE: New York City

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: Ms. Aguilera has been receiving a lot of flack lately for everything you could possibly mention about her under the sun but we’re not about to discuss that nor join in her bandwagon of haters.
