2010 Met Gala video: Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel sip before they schmooze

May 4, 2010 |  1:20 pm

We thought the secrets to surviving the Costume Institute Gala at the Met were double-stick tape and some Altoids -- Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake prefer tequila.

Though it surely has nothing to do with the fact that Justin owns a tequila brand, we still found it charming when the couple 'fessed up to their pregame habits at last night's big hurrah. 

Vogue contributing editor William Norwich fawns over the likes of Gwen Stefani, Sarah Jessica Parker, Eva Mendes, Katy Perry (who brought back-up batteries for her neon look) and Anne Hathaway in a video exclusive to the magazine.

The best part, in our opinion, is how starstruck everyone was over Oprah Winfrey and Anna Wintour.

"I just tripped right in front of Oprah and Anna, and I loved it. I thought it was awesome," said "Avatar" actress Zoe Saldana

"It was like Albert Brooks in 'Broadcast News,' " said Paul Rudd about meeting the big A and O. "I immediately started sweating."
