Anna Wintour and Sarah Jessica Parker Rank the Met Gala Men's White Tie Looks

Spoiler alert: Only one man seemed to get it right.

It's been a very good week for Anna Wintour: Not only did the Metropolitan Museum of Art officially open the costume center that's named in her honor (with First Lady Michelle Obama on hand to cut the ribbon), she raised a record-breaking $12 million at the Met Gala, which seemed to go off without a hitch—well, aside from a large number of the guests straying from the "white tie" theme.

The Vogue editor and her Met Gala co-chair Sarah Jessica Parker stopped by "Late Night with Seth Meyers" on Wednesday to discuss the evening, and after sharing a few fun anecdotes from the event, talk turned to dress code. According to Wintour, some men were so confused about the specifics of "white tie" that they turned to consummate gentleman Tom Ford to explain it to them. The most confounding aspect? The "decorations," which, according to Ford, men believed to be akin to Christmas tree ornaments.

From Tom "I Obviously Didn't Look at the Invitation" Brady to Jake "Brooklyn White Tie" Gyllenhaal, watch Parker and Wintour rank the the men of the night on their adherence to the theme—as you can probably imagine, no feelings were spared.
