Emma Roberts, Amber Heard, Emmy Rossum, January Jones, and Chloe Moretz stepped out for a fashionable affair at the Metropolitan Opera last evening for the premiere of Jules Massenet's Manon. Yves Saint Laurent sponsored the gala, which is why the black carpet was rich with YSL looks. Watch today's Fab Flash for our rundown on the top looks of the night. On Allison: Marni for H&M skirt.
Big-name celebrities came out last night for the premiere of Armida at the Met in New York. If you've never seen an opera, Armida would be an excellent place to start; it's about a woman who chooses revenge over love. Can't go wrong with that!
The New York Times interviewed the production's choreographer, Graciela Daniele, and asked what attracted her to it. "I like the power of the woman and the vulnerability of the woman," she said. "The fact that she’s all-powerful, and yet love comes in and makes things bad for her."
See what actresses showed up for the debut below.
You no longer have to be in NYC to get a dose of the Met: The famed opera house is going to start streaming its opera performances online! You'll be able to get audio and video via its "Met Player" from metopera.org.
While I think this is completely cool — I want all important forms of culture to be widely available on the web — I'm kind of curious about the audience rift. That is, are people who are into opera also tech buffs who watch streamed content on the Internet?
But then again, who's not into the Internet?! Share your thoughts on this below!
