Inside The Costume Institute Gala: The Tweets!

by HANNAH LAWRENCE · May 4, 2010

oscar de la renta, oprahFinished pouring over the INSANE photos from last night's Costume Institute Gala, and hungry for more? We've lined up the best tweets from the event.-

Derek Blasberg started tweeting about the event at 1PM yesterday, but things really heated up when he got a glimpse at Oprah, and of course, when he named his pick for "best dressed."

@derekblasberg: Not yet 1pm, and Met gala madness has begun! My first press release has arrived, but I already knew Emma Watson would wear Burberry!

@derekblasberg: VIVA LA 1990s! My best dressed vote goes to (of course) @TheLSD and her longsleeve Proenza Schouler sequin sheath. She's having a CBK moment

@derekblasberg: My gawd, @Oprah is glowing in Oscar de la Renta. It's like a big American Dream all wrapped up in lots of midnight blue fabric. Sigh

@derekblasberg: Paula Patton and Bar Rafaeli are working this afterparty barefoot! Don't know if I should be disappointed or sympathize. Them are HIGH heels

@derekblasberg:I am right now this second using the same toilet after Daniel Craig. James Bond fans, eat your heart out

But some of the best tweets came from Women's Wear Daily, who answered our most burning questions, like what Lady Gaga was wearing and who would end the night dancing on tables. (And, of course, coverage of Oprah continued.)

@womensweardaily: Anna Wintour and daughter Bee are among the very first to arrive at the Met Gala. #cfda

@womensweardaily:Oprah is coming up the steps with Oscar de la Renta, and two bodyguards. #cfda

@womensweardaily: Marc Jacobs is in a baseball cap. "I had a hair transplant," he said. #

@womensweardaily: Katy Perry turned her dress off for dinner. #metgala

@womensweardaily: Lady Gaga in long grey hair, glittering silver and nude bodysuit thrusting on stage in front of J Lo's and Gwen Stefani's table. At Met gala

@womensweardaily: Alexander Wang and Joseph Altuzarra dancing on tables.

And then, no celebrity is ever too far away from their Tweetie app.

@iamdiddy: I love fashion! Fun night. Lady gaga rocked. The night has just begun. Need a ciroc and coconut. Coco roc! Let's go!
