Best of the Costume Institute Gala

Sure, pictures of your favorite fashionable celebs at the annual Costume Institute Gala have already been plastered all over the tabloids, but the insiders know that the most fashionable people are those who are less famous and not controlled by Rachel Zoe-like stylists. The queens of the catwalk, the designers, small time actresses, and many more photo-worthy people of less than Jlo status deserve to have their great fashion choices appreciated too! So here are MY personal favorite fashion choices, let me know what you love/hate.

SOCIALITES AND GIRLFRIENDS
