In a priceless commentary about Met Gala co-host Amal Clooney's ravishing dress from Richard Quinn, George Clooney had the perfect response when questioned:  And where are the couple's twins, Alexander and Ella? "They're under the dress," Clooney replied.

“This is how we would be dressed when we arrive at heaven’s gate,” Sean “Diddy” Combs was overheard saying earlier today at a fitting with long-time stylist Derek Roche for his Met Gala garb.

“Puff actually went to Catholic private school as a kid, so this theme went with something that was engrained in him as a child,” says Roche. “I guess the best thing for him while in school and growing up, aside from his mom and his grandma and his dad, was believing in God. And in the Catholic church, the Pope is kind of the next thing to God, right? It didn’t hurt that Puff’s favorite color is white. When we thought about what the Pope wears, Puff said, ‘I’m godlike, right? As a successful black man, as a father, as an entrepreneur. So why not wear that same cloth, why not wear white like the Pope?”
