I’m typically not a celeb-envier; all the cameras, attention, rumors and stress sound…well, stressful. But when I see photos of awesome people geting together at the TIME 100 Gala last night and hanging out like it ain’t no thang, it’s hard not to be jealous. People like Amy Poelher and Jimmy Fallon and Gabrielle Giffords…it’s enough to make me want to invent something awesome, produce a movie starring myself and show up at events in really expensive evening wear (i.e. not the same old black H&M dress I utilize for all events, ever).
The Gala celebrates who TIME feels are the 100 most influential people of the year, which translates to hella famous folks chilling out together with their awesome dresses and tuxes and t-shirts (see Mia Farrow‘s below!). It also gave one of our favorite people, Ms. Poehler, a chance to take amazing photos with her fellow rad folks. Take a look…
Love how Claire Danes‘ hair reflects the wavy pattern and structure of her dress.
She’s Barbara Walters. She is definitely important, and very f’ing glamorous.
It’s been a minute since we saw Olivia Munn, and we’re loving this beautiful yellow, lace dress (although simultaneously pondering whether or not it’s super see-through in person).
I may be in the minority on this one, but I think Lena Dunham looks spectacular. I can see how somebody might hate this dress, and yet I love the whole look so very much.
I MEAN REALLY.
Mia Farrow showed her support of Boston.
Shonda Rhimes opted for a long, lovely gown with heavy embellishment.
Designer Michael Kors wore his typical snazzy suit (although the event was at night, so I think the sunglasses were a bit much).
I would likely hate Padma Lakshmi‘s dress on anybody else, but she still manages to look great. I wish the top portion was structured differently, but I really like how minimal her hair and makeup is given the intensity of her dress’ pattern.
So, um, who invited Christina Aguilera to a gala for relevant people?
JIMMY FALLON IS ALSO CONFUSED REGARDING AGUILERA’S ATTENDANCE. HIS MIDDLE FINGER DEMANDS ANSWERS.
Spanx founder/torture enthusiast Sara Blakely wore tangerine, which we can only assume will begin littering red carpets come May.
