While the stars on the West coast wrapped up their 2013 Emmy Awards celebrations, celebrities on the East coast pulled out all the stops with their best gowns for opera’s big night in New York City at the 2013 Metropolitan Opera season opener and they sure made an impression! From Brooke Shields, in a brown cape-adorned dress, Heather Graham, who wore a strapless beaded and tulle Naeem Khan gown in emerald (Pantone’s 2013 Color of the Year!), to Diane Kruger who stole the night with Prabal Gurung‘s red-white-and-black contrasting satin gown. The designer himself also made an appearance as Kruger’s date and we have to admit, the two looked very much like a stylish couple! The evening kicked off the 2013-2014 season with the premiere production of Tchaikovsky’s Russian-themed opera Eugene Onegin, about the fateful romance between Tatiana and Onegin set in the 19th century. The Metropolitan Opera 2013-2014 season runs until May 2014 and tickets are available at metoperafamily.org.
