Was Linda Evangelista in mourning at last night's MET Gala?

Does anyone else think it was kind of suspicious that Linda Evangelista was wearing an all-black ensemble to the Met Gala last night? The Italian supermodel settled her child-support case with Salma Hayek's French billionaire husband Francois-Henri Pinault just hours before. You would think that she would be out celebrating and dressing up like the rest of the celebrities at the Met Gala--an event seen by many celebrities as a chance to think out of the fashion box--but instead she was one of the only women who showed up in a boring black dress.

Was she in mourning over her settlement or what?!

Why else would the usually stylish supermodel choose such a bland and simple Prada dress. I mean, nothing against Prada but couldn't she have picked something, I don't know, more exciting?

But I guess there just wasn't much for her to celebrate on this night. Although she had originally asked for Francois-Henri to contribute $46,000 to the monthly expenses of raising their 5-year-old son Augie, I would venture to guess that the settlement wasn't all that she was expecting after the case turned nasty earlier this month.

I'm really not sure what was going on through her head when she picked that dreary gown and none of us know the results of her child-support case, but I really think that she was showing her feelings through fashion. Why else would she wear all-black to an event defined by glitz and glamour? I hope at least she won a decent amount (though maybe not $48K a month--seriously, that sounds more like a year's worth of expenses) to take care of her child.
