Curated by the Costume Institute's Andrew Bolton, the exhibit officially opens to the public on May 7 and kicked off with the "party of the year," the Costume Institute's annual star-studded gala on Monday, May 5, co-chaired by George Clooney, Julia Roberts (both of whom wore Giorgio Armani) and Anna Wintour (who wore Chanel Haute Couture).

Dynamic super duos included Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez (in Alberta Ferretti), Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes (both in Armani) and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (in different gowns by Diane von Furstenberg). Vera Wang, wearing her own design, also dressed model Karolina Kurkova, while Liv Tyler donned Calvin Klein Collection and Scarlett Johansson opted for Dolce & Gabanna. Beyonce looked stunning in a tightly-bodiced Armani Prive gown while Eva Longoria wore Hollywood favorite Marchesa.
