The Metropolitan Museum of Art's big annual gala, aka the Met Gala, took place this week—and you almost certainly weren't there (though if you were, please feel free to take us next year). However, fashion designer Cynthia Rowley decided to strap a GoPro Hero3 camera to her purse and record the festivities. This is basically the closest we'll get to being a celebrity, at least until we make our way back into John Malkovich's brain.

You can definitely see J Crew boss Jenna Lyons (along with Public School designers Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow), Michelle Williams (but only her body), Hayden Panettiere (she's the one laughing, always laughing), Donatella Versace, Bill Cunningham (1:30!), Dita Von Teese, Katie Couric's elbows, and "a shoeless Lena Dunham tip-toeing through the Met." Maybe YOU can recognize even more celebrities, because you always have been a celebrity inside, and you've just never been given a chance to shine, but this is your chance to shine, you celebrity you.

But wait, there's more: this wasn't the only internal video captured of the festivities. Full time model and part time Michelle Rodriguez drinking buddy Cara Delevingne uploaded a few videos of herself in an elevator with other starlets (including Reese Witherspoon, Zooey Deschanel, and Kate Upton).

The videos have been removed, but Gawker has them here for your vicarious viewing pleasure. Now if someone could just explain what Witherspoon meant when she said, "[You know] what's the most important thing in a name—for a girl? It's that a man can whisper it into his pillow," that would be most helpful.

Finally, here's an exclusive look inside the ladies' room:

Update: The video has been made private for some reason, which is the digital equivalent of a bouncer stepping in front of you and gently pushing a hand into your chest, making it clear you don't belong.

The Daily Mail has some more screenshots from the vid in the meantime; while we all wait to see if the video will be put back up, we'll be here whispering Reese Witherspoon's name into our pillow.

Update: ABC thankfully captured the video before it went down, so we can begin the process of learning to live again (vicariously):
