NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Many ladies love their handbags and will spend a lot of money for the latest and greatest, but a new study says what is inside those bags may be covered in germs worse than what you’ll find in the bathroom.
Don't let the air kissing fool you: last night's most esteemed contenders really upped the sartorial ante at last night's Met Gala, and with competition as heavy as it was, there's certainly no room for error. Formally the Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the event's venerable attendees gathered to honor both Miuccia Prada and the late Elsa Schiaparelli, though the former wasn't exactly mused about the on-camera time (she paused for a moment alongside Elettra Wiedemann, offering a swift smile and a goodbye). Still, dozens of fashion royalty were quick to soak up the attention, lest all that time spent in fittings, hair and makeup be all for naught. Let's take a look at the ladies who lead the fashion pack at last's Met Ball.
Dianna Agron in Carolina Herrera might just have been my favorite look of the night.
Chloe Sevigny, the queen of ugly-pretty looked almost, well, pretty-pretty in Miu Miu.
It was no surprise to see Rooney Mara in Givenchy Haute Couture, but the 27-year-old actress killed it in Riccardo Tisci's design.
Dressed in Dior Couture, Jessica Stam was nearly unrecognizable with dark hair. Perf.
Let's be serious - there's nothing that I can say about Marc Jacobs in Comme des Garçons that it doesn't say for itself.
Does Cate Blanchett ever age? The actress looked amazing in a black Alexander McQueen mermaid-style gown.
Beyonce makes the list in Givenchy Haute Couture, BECAUSE DUH.
Despite a diss from Miuccia Prada herself, Coco Rocha stunned in a Givenchy pantsuit and Sergio Rossi pink Milady pumps.
Though Alber Elbaz may have out-adorable'd Emma Stone, the actress looked nothing short of perfect in a custom red Lanvin above-the-knee dress hand embroidered with crystal flowers.
Megan DrapaerJessica Paré stunned in a gold L'Wren Scott column.
Dakota Fanning's Louis Vuitton number was hotly debated in the Ology office, but I thought this was a winner. Still, I'd have liked to see soft curls.
You have to give Karolina Kurkova credit - girl really went for it in Rachel Zoe Collection, turban and all.
Caroline Trentini looked perfectly demure in custom Theyskens Theory by Olivier Theyskens. Let's take a moment to stare at Olivier's hair, plz.
Is there anyone you think I missed? Let me know in the comments! Unless you're going to say Lea Michele or Camilla Belle, because NO.
