HERE was no shortage of heavenly creatures at the spectacular opening night of Goddess, the new exhibit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. Mme Diana Vreeland would have proclaimed “simply dee-vine” as evening co-chair.
Nicole Kidman arrived in a shimmering one-shoulder gown that would have been the envy of Venus, and a pair of seven-inch-long glittering diamond chandelier eardrops!
For extra wattage, she had fellow Oscar winner Adrien (The Pianist) Brody on her arm. Look, the girl just can’t have too much sparkle.
Fellow co-chairs were none too shabby including, Anna Wintour and Gucci’s Tom Ford – she in a sea of feathers from Dior Couture and he in—natch—Tom Ford for Gucci.
The annual fete, once the longtime domain of New York’s society set, has in recent years – as the saying goes – gone Hollywood.
Yes, there were Carolina and Reinaldo Herrera, Nan Kemper, Nina Griscom, Cornelia and C.Z. Guest, but they’ve been joined by a bevy of beauties from the entertainment industry:
Angie Harman and hubby Jason Sehorn, Michael J. Fox and wife Tracy Pollan, Ellen Barkin and hubby Ron Perelman, Diana Ross, Hillary Swank and husband Chad Lowe, Kim Cattrall, Claire Danes and Kirsten Dunst. Heavenly!
