“I’ve always wanted to come,” said Tom Hooper, the director of The King’s Speech, at last night’s Costume Institute Gala. “It takes winning an Oscar to get invited.” A guest of Anna Wintour’s, Hooper brought his new girlfriend, designer Tara Subkoff, as his date. “It’s quite recent,” he said of their relationship. Did she help him pick out his suit for the evening? “This is exactly the same, down to the shirt, that I wore on the night of the Oscars, and the great thing about being a man is no one gives a damn.”
