Last night, the fashion world gathered to celebrate Anna Wintour’s new Costume Institute at the Met and interpret, to varying degrees, the Charles James–themed dress code. The Cut’s Jada Yuan was there to interrogate attendees about the smaller details of their nights — from how Karolina Kurkova managed to travel in her very, very large dress, to the inspiration behind Lily Allen’s outfit (“Literally, the dress Chanel sent me”), to Katie Couric’s technique for dusting her apartment with the train of her dress. Watch the video for these and more highlights from last night’s red carpet.
