The week started off on a sad note as news surfaced of actress Lynn Redgrave's death after a seven-year battle with breast cancer. The talented Brit, 67, was the sister of actress Vanessa Redgrave and the aunt of Natasha Richardson who passed away last year from a skiing accident. Lynn was twice nominated for an Academy Award, most recently for her role in 1998's "Gods and Monsters." She also appeared in small TV roles on "Ugly Betty," "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" and "Desperate Housewives." "My heart goes out to Lynn Redgrave's family...very sad..," Denise Richards Tweeted. "RIP Lynn Redgrave. A wonderful actress, a gracious woman, always with a smile. She was total CLASS. She will be missed," wrote Marlee Matlin.
For stars living and playing in New York City, the dismal weather was at the forefront of their minds."Its far too humid in nyc and all i brought was cashmere...ugh," complained Emma Roberts. "... So should I wear a rain coat to the Met now? #endoftheworldthunderstorms," joked Katy Perry about tonight's Met Costume Institute Gala.
