Every year I get a good chuckle out of everyone who comes out to the Costume Gala to slay for the camera, and not bother to participate in the costume party. And slay they did, this year with both Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian showing off their bodies to stunning, bedazzled effect. But the clear red-carpet winner here is Rihanna, whose richly embroidered fur gown, with extravagant train and elaborate golden headdress, makes her look like a queen straight off of a Ming Dynasty scroll. Indulge.
