Opera Chic always answers the question "how do you make opera cool" with: first, you take cool people to the opera. America's coolest film director & general smartypants, Spike Lee, went to the Met's Armida and a good time was apparently had by all (except him):
Spike Lee only made it through one act before exiting.
Also spotted, all decked out in YSL (but opera fan Stefano Pilati had to remain in Paris, working hard on the new collection): Renee Fleming fan Ginnifer Goodwin, Chloe Sevigny and Maggie Gyllenhaal. Unlike Spike, they stayed for the duration of show. More photos, and an idea for the Met (or NYCO), after the jump!
