My least favorite type of fundraiser is the gala. I hate them. But, I also know some people really like them... and I know blog posts about celebrities really drive visitors to this site, so here goes:
"The most stylish stars flock to Manhattan each year for the Metropolitan Musueum of Art's Costume Institute Gala, which is thrown by Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour. This year, the A-list guests embraced their inner superheroes for the "Superheros: Fashion and Fantasy" themed bash May 5, 2008. The superhero mania that is invading American cinemas this summer took hold at one of the country's most distinguished art museums with an exhibit on how the colorful costumes have influenced fashion."
