Tommy Hilfiger, in a classic tuxedo with white pocket square, soaked it all in. "It's the Super Bowl of fashion."

Appropriately even a few star quarterbacks put in an appearance: Tom Brady went with Gisele Bundchen and Tim Tebow rubbed elbows with stars like Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Gwyneth Paltrow, Heidi Klum and Florence Welch. The gala celebrates the new fashion exhibit that compares the designs of Miuccia Prada, who wore a pantsuit to the event, and the late Elsa Schiaparelli.

Mixed in among the serious fahionistas was late-night funnyman Jimmy Fallon.

"Oh my gosh! All the makeup, all the hair!" he joked of his primping process. "This looks like real hair right? Piece by piece, it's yak hair."
