NEW YORK — What’s a little rain to the fashion faithful? Absolutely nothing. Fashion and Hollywood’s best and brightest turned out for the Met’s Costume Institute gala despite May showers. Nicole Kidman, in a Chanel gown made especially for her by the Kaiser himself, Karl Lagerfeld, her date and co-host, scampered inside where they received their guests, including Jennifer Connelly, Selma Blair and Claire Danes.
