Marc Jacobs & Ryan Murphy - Met Ball 2012

Marc Jacobs wears a sheer lace outfit at the 2012 Met Ball held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

The 49-year-old designer, who walked the red carpet with Lorenzo Martone, told reporters he chose his outfit because he didn’t want to go with a suit like every other guy.

Also pictured at this year’s Costume Institute Gala Benefit: Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy and his fiance David Miller.

Ryan‘s new comedy, The New Normal, was recently picked up by NBC for its fall lineup.

The show will center around a gay couple (played by Andrew Rannells and Justin Bartha) and the surrogate mother for their children.

Malin Akerman & Jessica Stam - Met Ball 2012

Malin Akerman and Jessica Stam walk the red carpet at the 2012 Met Ball held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

Malin, 33, accessorized with Christian Louboutin shoes and Fred Leighton jewelry.

Jessica is wearing a John Galliano for Christian Dior Haute Couture dress with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.

After replacing Lindsay Lohan in the Linda Lovelace film Inferno, Malin is now unsure if the film will ever be made.

“I don’t know if that’s even going to go,” Malin told THR last month. “Last I heard, which was just before Christmas, we were supposed to start shooting in March, and now it’s April. It’s been one of those doomed films that I absolutely love and totally believe in, I love the script, I think it’s such a well-written script about the behind-the-scenes of a battered woman.”
