The Metropolitan Opera opened its fall season on Monday night with Mozart’s “Le Nozze di Figaro.” The annual black tie gala following the opening performance drew in quite a fashionable crowd, as it always seems to do. Former classically trained singer-turned-model Tao Okamoto arrived clad in a golden gown designed by Zac Posen, her date for the evening. Girls‘ actress Jemima Kirke showed off her new pink hair, which perfectly matched the lilies on her dress. While Met icons Renée Fleming and Anna Netrebko donned their opera diva finest.

Others in attendance included: Actress Maggie Grace, restauranteur Katie Lee, television personality Beth SternHedwig and the Angry Inch Broadway star Andrew Rannells, designer Ralph Rucci, actress Christine Baranski, model Bridget Moynahan, jeweler Zani Gugelmann, actor Josh Lucas, designer Sophie Theallet, investor and ‘it-girl’ Julie MackloweVogue‘s Grace Coddington, designer Vera Wang, and actress Patricia Clarkson.
