It pains me to have to say this (seriously, I am still recovering) but the annual happenings of The Met Gala is too much of a good thing. True that there is no other event in NYC that rivals – not even Fashion Week – its level of star power. But covering its three hour arrivals slot is exhausting – to say the least – leaving you to have to play catch up for days – case and point: my doing this recap today.
Celebrities from every corner of entertainment – from fashion to sociallites to Hollywood and beyond – all cluster onto the steps of the famed museum for the annual unveiling of The Costume Institute’s high-brow exhibit.
It is my understanding that some have even cried for an invite. I can’t say I fault em really. I myself would perform Cirque du Soleil numbers just to get to cover it – I won’t say anything about what I’d be willing to do to attend…
But the night isn’t without its high lights for us minions. For me watching Naomi Watts’ reaction to being told to move as Jude Law and Sienna Miller walked behind her up the stairs is priceless. No offense to Ms. Watts.
Now that I am semi-recovered I’ve put together a highlight of attendees at whats become NYC’s version of the West Coast’s awards season: Daniel Craig, Emma Roberts, Naomi Watts, Janet Jackson, Anne Hathaway, Rosario Dawson, Abbie Cornish and Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady – to name a few. Stay tuned for another recap.
When George Clooney picks up the phone and asks his colleagues for help, it seems folks come a running from every walk of entertainment. From Madonna to Daniel Craig, Jennifer Hudsonn and Taylor Lautner to Mel Gibson and beyond… That’s clout! And it’s amazing to see it happen.
There is little to be said about last night’s “Hope for Haiti Now: A Global Benefit for Earthquake Relief“, that hasn’t already been stated, so I won’t even try to come up with some double entendre, glib comment or slight innuendo. Just don’t go thinking it will be common practice henceforth.
It’s just a good cause asking for desperately needed aid for a country that, on a good day, can use help. Throw in this massive quake, which has left the nation devastated, and they not only need global aid but everything else the world can spare.
I of all folks know it is hard to give when you barely have enough yourself – but as Stevie Wonder attested while manning the phones on the program, “a whole lot of littles make a whole lot of lots.” Give whatever you can spare.
