They say the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute Gala is the Oscars of Fashion, so if we’re relieved that for once actresses are guided by the deft hands of designers it’s not out of spite. NYC is the center of American design after all even if we are home to faux fashion industry folks (ahem, The City). That said, just how did the American Woman look last night? Drop dead glamour contrasted by some quirkier picks underlined the mood of the evening. Here are some of the night’s best picks.

There were only a few short looks for the fancy evening, but of the pack, January Jones was one of the best in her bright beaded YSL. The ‘Mad Men’ actress looks ladylike in just about anything. Photo: Dara Kushner/INFevents.com

We love a fashion risk-taker, so leave it up to Alexa Chung to stir things up a bit with this boyish head-to-toe look by Phillip Lim. Photo: B. Ach/INFevents.com

Speaking of girls who walk to their own tune, Chloe Sevigny turned heads in this embroidered lace teal confection by Proenza Schouler with cut-out back. It certainly wasn’t conventional but aren’t we all a bit tired of the usual anyways? Photo: B. Ach/INFevents.com

She may not be American, but we’ll give actress Marion Cotillard an honorary exemption for the night. If not for her talent, then for her Christian Dior stunner. Photo: B. Ach/INFevents.com

Smart move Zoe Saldana: Often a simple number works best. And if any Tinseltown starlet owns the color blue this time by Calvin Klein Collection the ‘Avatar’ star pretty much has it in the bag. Photo: B. Ach/INFevents.com
