Clutch Cam! Watch Designer Cynthia Rowley's Secret Film Of The Stars At The Met Ball

09 May 2014 by

[Hayden Panettiere at the Met Ball - Clutch Cam]

Who fancies a sneak peek at what really happened inside the Met Ball? You're in luck! Designer Cynthia Rowley secretly filmed the whole glamorous affair using an ingenious camera.

Cynthia fitted a tiny GoPro camera in her jeweled minaudière handbag before heading the event, cutting a hole in the bag so she could capture all the comings and goings on camera. She then edited all the footage together to make a super  intriguing film. 

We see her casually putting her bag in various locations to get shots of the red carpet, conversations with stars, the dining room and some of the celebrities themselves. 

Stars like Michelle Williams and Donatella Versace appear in the film. Plus, Dita Von Teese is captured stopping to talk to fans on the red carpet.One shot shows Hayden Panetierre having a right old barrel of laughs and another shows supermodel Karolina Kurkova catching up with fellow model Dree Hemingway. The highlight though? Lena Dunham strolling round the party in bare feet, making us love her *even* more. 

Cynthia's not the only Met Ball guest to video the event. Cara Delevingne shot some hilarious footage of Reese Witherspoon and Zooey Deschanel as they traveled in a lift together. Plus Selena Gomez posted a video of herself and Taylor Swift running around inside the venue on Instagram.

We love all the uber-chic red carpet snaps of the night, but we can't help but think these video insights are even better! 

See the best moments from this year's event.
