As OC was wrapping-up Milan Fashion Week spring 2013 coverage (tip: natural is the new black for beauty and streamlined Sixties is the buzz for collections), complete randomness reigned at last night's non-Wagner/non-Verdi opening night of The Metropolitan Opera's l'Elisir. Madonna's ex, Marc Jacobs' ex, a hockey player, a celebrity chef, models who weren't walking the Milan/Paris shows -- and when Courtney Love shows up, you know it's gonna be a paaaar-tay.
HBIC Austin Scarlett enchanted (above, with date, soprano Lisette Oropesa), Isabel Leonard devastated (below) and Placido mayored (with Marta) the random starlettes who rang-in The Met's new season. Randomness asidie, props to The Met for sourcing the It Crowd at the event that inaugurates eight months of culture (yay) -- we'll never pine for the pre-red carpet days when glitterati was crownded with NYC anchormen and Montauk retirees. At this rate, Gelb might finally have to spring for a new tux (sartorial advice -- go bespoke.) So how did Trebs sound as L'Elisir d'Amore's lead? Midgette sounded-off for her WP Classical Beat.
