Behind Every Great Gown, There's a Great Wrangler

May 6 2014 - 1:17pm

Those stunning red carpet moments [1] that seem to happen like magic? Turns out there are a few helpful hands behind them. The magic elves are known as wranglers, and they are working stealthily behind the scenes to make sure those gorgeous trains are laid out perfectly for photographers.

Of course, sometimes their fast moves don't evade the camera, and when they're caught (as was often the case at last night's Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art [2]), it makes for some of the most dramatic moments of all. Whether it's a professional like Beyoncé employs, the designer, as was the case with Hailee Steinfeld, or a friend like Sarah Jessica Parker [3] found in Andy Cohen, see the wranglers at work here.
