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: 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: 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!
And all the while, guess who did not go?
@parishilton:Laying in bed with my puppies watching Family Guy. I love this show! :)
