Moms Hit the Red Carpet at the 2012 Met Ball [OH YES, THERE ARE PHOTOS]

My invitation to this year’s Met gala somehow got lost in the mail — No!  I lie!  The cats and I are convinced Leslie Bibb totally stole it — so instead of providing you with behind-the-scenes juice about Dakota Fanning throwing Skittles down the front of Sofia Vergara’s dress, all I can offer are these pictures of celebrity moms at the event, complete with expert fashion commentary below.

WARNING:  Parental discretion is advised, as Beyoncé appeared to have suffered a Mommy Brain moment and forgotten the back of her dress.  Whoopsie!  (We’ve all been there.)

Uh-oh. Looks like they ran out of Muppets willing to sacrifice themselves for Beyonce's get-up.

Gwyneth Paltrow is one mild breeze away from showing us where Apple and Moses came from.

Jessica-Alba

Jessica Alba keeps it classy with a golden goddess Michael Kors number. What, no Muppet roadkill or near-vaginal slips? WHAT'S UP WITH THAT, ALBA?

Tom-Brady-Gisele-Met-Ball

There's a lot going on in this picture -- Tom! Gisele! Givenchy Haute Couture! Velvet! -- and yet all I can think is: DUDE, WHAT IS GOING ON WITH YOUR HAIR?!

A Sofia Vergara picture with no cleavage? Brace yourselves, folks -- it's a Sign of the Apocalypse!

Elizabeth Banks kindly stuck around in case Geisha services were requested.

Um, Alicia Keys...? I hope it's the fit of the tux -- and not having a child -- that's making your vagina appear to hang to your knees.

Amy Adams shows us how you can creatively use leftover holiday bows!

DebraMessing-Met-Ball

Debra Messing uses her easy-access dress to score some beads at the event! Sweet.

Cate Blanchett wears a black trumpet-hem Alexander McQueen gown. Bonus for the Met Ball's cleaning crew: her feather duster swept up all dirt in her path!

"I'm wearing Valentino because I love this dress. It reminded me of a different time," said Sarah Jessica Parker. Yes! A time when... "Little House on the Prairie" was on TV.

Heidi Klum wears an Escada mini with a lace overlay and Christian Louboutin heels -- you know, everyday mom attire.

Marion Cotillard, mom of almost one-year-old Marcel, wears Dior Haute Couture and little else.

Amy-Poehler

Amy Poehler has made us laugh so hard that we can't breathe, so it's only fair that she wear a dress in which *she* can't breathe.

Brooke Shields armed herself with a cane because Arnold Schwarzenegger was rumored to show up. "Get your hands off of there, Schwarzenegger!"

Karolina Kurkova, mom of two-year-old Tobin, finds a creative solution for a bad hair day.

Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick Expecting Twins via Surrogate

Just a couple of months ago, the tabloids claimed Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick were dunzo.  Kaput.  Fini.   Well, not only are they still together, but it turns out the couple has been brewing a new family addition.

In a statement, their reps announced:

“Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick are happily anticipating the birth of their twin daughters later this summer with the generous help of a surrogate. The entire family is overjoyed.”

Apparently, SJP, 44, and Ferris, 47, have been trying to add to their family ever since the birth of their son, James Wilkie, now 6.   But it just wasn’t happening, so the couple turned to a surrogate — whose name and place of residence have not been disclosed — last year.

“They’re over the moon and excited as any prospective parents would be,” says the friend. “Their life is about to get a lot busier.”

Ah, yes — of COURSE they are “over the moon.”  ALL celebrities are freakin’ “over the moon” about their babies.  Perhaps their friends and publicists should dip into a new pool of exciting phrases, such as:

“Happy as a lark!”

“Tickled pink!”

“On cloud nine!”

“In seventh heaven!”

And my personal favorite:

“They really couldn’t care less.  Why the hell do you ask?”
