Finally, with good grace, he walked her in where she greeted several hundred of the 800 dinner guests in a receiving line next to the two other chairmen of the evening, sexy smiling Tom Ford in an elegant dinner jacket with a gardenia in his lapel and an enormously chic Anna Wintour of the Vogue Wintours in a luxurious white feathered jacket and white charmeuse dress by Dior. Nicole stood her ground for 45 minutes and didn’t go into dinner until Tom Ford gently guided her in at 9 p.m.

Nicole, who now lives on Church Street in TriBeCa, announced she loved being in New York and that she was going to come back to the Met with her children to see the "Goddess" exhibition. When someone asked if she felt like a goddess, she laughed and said, "Maybe a little, but only because of this beautiful dress that Tom made me. I trust his judgment completely and just told him to make me something that would suit my figure." She went on to say that "men should treat their mothers, daughters, girlfriends and wives like goddesses, and, if they did that all the time, there would be fewer problems in the world." So smart and beautiful, too.

Robert Isabell transformed the Met’s restaurant into an all-white Grecian temple with white linen panels lining the walls. Towering crab apple blossom branches centered the crisp, cream-colored covered tables, and the room was edged with 5,000 white and pink peonies. Right at home in this perfect setting was C.Z. Guest in a white and gold dress especially made for her by her dinner guest, Oscar de la Renta. C.Z.’s daughter, Cornelia, wore a cocoa chiffon dress with a beaded top by Badgley Mischka. Actually, there were more beautiful dresses and jewels on more beautiful women than you would see anywhere, including Paris. Kate Hudson wore her hair up with dripping tendrils and a wide diamond headband. Glorious Carolina Herrera wore an ermine capelet over her own design, an off-white and black column, and her fabulous diamond and emerald jewels. Iman with her husband, David Bowie, was in white satin, one of the few dresses with a deep neckline. Lynn Wyatt wore vintage white couture, enormous diamond earrings and a diamond flower pin. Vera Wang was in white with a plunging back of her own design held up by black straps.
