After dinner on Monday night, Hendley and I decided to walk over to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We had heard that the Met Gala was that night, and everyone who is anyone attends this prestigious event. After walking about two miles on aching feet, we finally arrived to see no one there; it was only 9:30. The eager fans in front of us encouraged us to stay, saying they would all be coming out around 10.
So, we waited. And we waited. And we waited some more. We were starting to lose hope, until we saw the edge of a beautiful black and white gown graze the red carpeted steps, only to realize it was Charlize Theron. Immediately reinvigorated with our craving to see celebrities, we decided to stick around a little longer.
All of the sudden, every known celebrity in the world started to pour out onto 5th Avenue, causing Hendley and I to erupt in giddy screams. Everyone from Sarah Jessica Parker, to Graydon Carter, the editor of Vanity Fair, to designers Jason Wu and Zac Posen.
