The evening of excess known as the Met Gala took place in New York Monday night, and as always the black-tie extravaganza benefiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute attracted all the beautiful people. (And the richest: Tickets cost tens of thousands of dollars apiece, and tables went for upward of $275,000.)
Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen made the scene, as they often do. Others with local ties at the event included former governor Mitt Romney and wife Ann, Patriots owner Robert Kraft and girlfriend Ricki Lander, Cohasset’s Kate Bosworth, and Cambridge native Mindy Kaling.
The evening kicks off the Costume Institute’s annual show; this year’s, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” includes pieces by Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, and Schiaparelli and ecclesiastical dress on loan from the Vatican.
