Posted Tuesday May 8, 2007 3:00 PM GMT

The New York Metropolitan Museum of Art was the place to be and be seen on Monday night (May 7). The Met played host to this year's Costume Institute Gala in honor of Paul Poiret.

Poiret was a renowned pre-World War II fashion designer, who was the first to use draping in dressmaking and is credited with launching the suspender belt, flesh-colored stockings, the sack dress and culottes.
