The 2010 Met Costume Institute Gala took place in New York, May 3rd , 2010 night, and there definitely wasn’t a shortage of female celebrities attending.  “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart, Brooke Shields, Jennifer Lopez, Emma Watson, Jessica Biel, Iman, Sienna Miller, Taylor Swift and “Sex and the City” star Sarah Jessica Parker were among the fabulous who came out in New York to support the annual gala -- with its notoriously select social and celebrity guest list on par with the Oscars -- kicking off Metropolitan Museum of Art's "American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity" exhibition, which explores the way fashion between 1890 and 1940 contributed to the evolving identity and perception of American women.

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, legendary chat-show host Oprah Winfrey and Gap creative director Patrick Robinson hosted the event. Houses such as Thakoon and Rodarte were moonlighting, to dress ladies such as Kerry Washington and Kirsten Dunst.  Sarah Jessica Parker was wearing Halston Heritage, while Jessica Biel went with a Grecian Ralph Lauren number. Brooke Shields wore a Michael Kors and Oprah Winfrey wore an Oscar de la Renta, and both hit the red carpet with their creators.
