The Met Gala, otherwise known as the Oscars of the fashion world, was held tonight at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The guest list for Anna Wintour’s exclusive event, which opens the yearly costume exhibit at the museum, includes only A-list celebrities and top designers.
The theme is “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology” and focuses on the dichotomy between man-made and machine-made fashion. Jewish stars were all over the red carpet and they stunned in their on-theme dresses and tuxedos.
Here are just some of our favorite looks:
SJP is a staple at the Met Gala, and this year she attended with her BFF Andy Cohen.
Amy Schumer wore a bold, red Alexander McQueen with thigh-high slits.
Ivanka Trump showed up in a non-controversial Ralph Lauren dress.
At the young age of 20, Tavi Gevinson is already a pro at the Met Gala dress game.
Young actress, and Taylor Swift squad member, Hailee Steinfeld shimmered in this green dress.
Ben Stiller and wife Christine Taylor give Derek Zoolander a run for his money.
Having serious back-envy for Emily Ratajkowski’s dress.
The ageless Paul Rudd is dapper in a black tux.
The ladies of Haim were on theme mixing lace dresses with metal hair pieces.
Diane Von Furstenberg went au natural with very life-like butterflies in her hair.
Jack Huston went in a less traditional direction and wore a blue and black tux.
For once, it doesn’t matter if you live in an L.A. mega-mansion or a tiny New York apartment – you’ve still got to clean out your hametz. A happy Passover from all your favorite Jewish celebrities.

religion isn't a contest but matzah is def more normcore than peeps and cadbury eggs — Tavi Gevinson (@tavitulle) April 11, 2014
In March 2012, teenage fashion writer Tavi Gevinson gave a TED talk bemoaning the lack of strong female characters in pop culture. “Strong,” she said, doesn’t mean “two dimensional super-women who maybe have one quality that’s played up a lot.” Rather, she argued, we need “strong characters who happen to be female.”
In a recent post, culture blogger Alyssa Rosenberg went further. “The evaluation of whether a female character is strong shouldn’t be about whether or not the character herself demonstrates physical or emotional resilience, but about whether the execution of the character… is precise and unique,” she wrote. “”Strong,’ if we’re going to keep using the term, should be an indicator of quality, rather than of type.”
I couldn’t agree more. And it’s a reason that “Archer” — Adam Reed’s animated spy comedy now in its fourth season on FX — is one of the best shows on television.
Tavi Gevinson has accomplished more in her 16 years than most people double her age.
The style blogger, writer and darling of the fashion set launched a fashion blog from her suburban Chicago home before she turned 12. Two years later it was getting 50,000 hits a day and she was a fixture in the front row of fashion shows in New York, Paris and Tokyo.
Profiles of the young fashionista followed in the New York Times and the New Yorker, along with stories in French Vogue and in teen magazines.
Gevinson has added editor to her credits with the publication of “Rookie Yearbook One,” a compilation of articles, photographs and drawings from her Rookie website, which she started about 15 months ago.
“I always had it in the back of my mind that I wanted to do a print component. Each month on the site is a different theme. I eventually realized that to do a yearly book, and call it a yearbook, would be the best format,” she said.
