(NEW YORK) “I can’t wait to be in the dark in YSL!” laughed Chloe Sevigny while cocktailing at the YSL-sponsored premiere of the Met Opera’s Armida. “I can't wait to be full and in the dark in my YSL,” Ginnifer Goodwin chimed in, as she waited for dinner service prior to the start of the epic production, which lasted for 4 hours and 5 minutes.

“I want to see anything with Renée Fleming,” proclaimed Patricia Clarkson. “I can't think of anyone better to watch for four hours. I won't drink a lot of champagne so I'll stay alert and upright!” “I might need to get home before midnight!” added Goodwin, who graced the black tie affair alongside boyfriend Joey Kern. “I have to report to the set tomorrow morning and be a good girl.”

Camilla Belle was one of the evening's fashion standouts in her black and white gown. “This all feels quite classy and fancy,” she gushed. “Lately, I’ve just been preoccupied by cooking with friends at home!” Even Bill Cunningham was impressed. “The girls are bringing some colors and sex to this event,” he smiled as he handed his notepad to the likes of Maggie Gyllenhaal and Clarkson to verify their names. “This is a grand, incredible New York thing to do,” offered Gyllenhaal as she indulged the legendary snapper. "For the last few weeks, I've been just hanging out with my husband in Brooklyn.”

Other notable guests included Vito Schnabel (whose father designed an elaborate banner for the event), Julie Macklowe, Emily Mortimer, Carol Smith, Sally Singer, Tabitha Simmons, Hamish Bowles, and YSL’s chic CEO Valérie Hermann. But perhaps no one was more excited about the Met experience than Bette Midler. “I dreamt of being an opera diva as a little girl but I never did have the chops,” she smiled. “But it's never too late—you never can tell!”
