The world's #1 fashion model, Joan Smalls, walked the red carpet at last night's Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art with Vera Wang, wearing a custom designed deep nude strapless silk tulle gown with hand tucked body and sheer skirt accented by a center front skirt slit by the designer. This year's "White Tie and Decorations" attired gala honors the Anglo-American designer Charles James, the first U.S. courtier and designer to 20th century socialites, including Millicent Rogers and Gloria Venderbilt.
Also walking the red carpet in Vera Wang last night were Alexis Stoudemire, wife of New York Knicks' forward Amar'e Stoudemire, and Dr. Samantha Boardman.
