We caught up with celebs and designers via their Twit Pics–and brought you the best of behind the scenes before (and during) the Met Ball–from limo rides to hot air balloons, with Anna Wintour in Chanel and Oprah in Oscar thrown in for good measure:

The hot air balloon at the Met Ball was inspired by the 1893 World Fair. Via Jim Shi.
Our girl SJP in Halston. Jim Shi always gets the best Twit Pics.
Anna Wintour, in Chanel Couture, paused for interviews on the red carpet while Hilsays captured the moment.
Oscar de la Renta puts the finishing touches on Oprah’s gown earlier–it was hand made, over the course of 250 hours, by four people. Thanks, OscarPRGirl!
