For the benefit of Twitchy readers who aren’t attending or just forgot it was tonight, the Costume Institute Gala at the Anna Wintour Costume Center inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art — better known as the #MetGala — is the first celebrity-studded red carpet event since Saturday night’s #NerdProm.

While Twitchy doesn’t have a fashion category, #MetGala is topping Twitter’s trends Monday night, largely buoyed by Madonna, 57, who was running late and arrived wearing only the top half of her gown.

More accurately, it looks like any attempt at coverage on Madonna’s part was half-assed at best.

Behold your cultural betters.
