To which, Sara Jessica Parker chimed in: "I told him, 'You brought a little bit of class.' He elevated the evening."

Vogue editor Anna Wintour also revealed that they chose white tie as this year's theme in order to force the men into putting more thought about what they are going to wear, in the tradition of the 1950s when high-profile affairs typically demand a white tie.

"I had no idea into how much panic this would make the men of New York and all over the world think about their outfits," she said.

This year's Met Gala draw A-list celebrities, politicians and philanthropists and raised $12 million. In the 16 years that the annual charity event is running, it has raised a total of $125 million, according to Mail Online.

"Sherlock" actor Benedict Cumberbatch has reportedly hooked a girlfriend, an insider told last month.

"She isn't in the public eye and has quite a serious career, so [she] is keen to remain anonymous as long as possible," the source added. Could that girlfriend be "Fifty Shades of Grey" cast Dakota Johnson?
