Belles At The Ball

Monday night saw the rich and famous strutting their stuff on the red carpet at the entrance to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, in aid of fashion's biggest event - the Costume Institute Gala, complete with superhero theme.

Many a celebrity was in attendance, including the Beckhams, Julia Roberts, Eva Longoria, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise - but what really matters around here, the models, are the ones who really stole the show.

A good amount of the industry's most prominent models were there as guests of the top designers. The best dressed of the night included regular guests Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady, wearing Atelier Versace and Tom Ford respectively (pictured); Jessica Stam in Proenza Schouler; Karolina Kurkova in Vera Wang; Natasha Poly in Phi; Liya Kebede in Jonathon Saunders and Kate Moss in Stella McCartney.

Relative newcomers to the guestlist included Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, looking stunning with new bangs and in Burberry Prorsum (pictured); Lily Donaldson, also in Burberry Prorsum; Doutzen Kroes in threeasfour, Anja Rubik and Coco Rocha, both in Pucci and Jourdan Dunn in Bill Blass.

Overall the night was an overwhelming success on the model front, and witha wide choice of afterparties to keep them going into the early hours, it's really no suprise!
