Hilary Swank

Talk about beauty and a beast of an injury.

Last night, Hilary Swank was 100 percent glamazon when she strolled the red carpet and mingled with fashion's finest at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala, but yesterday morning, she wasn't quite so polished, when she was spotted arriving at JFK airport sporting a nasty and painful-looking injury on her hand.

So what happened?

Though it looks like a bad burn—and possibly a fresh one at that—a source close to the 37-year-old dismissed the seriousness of the injury, telling E! News, "It's just a simple scratch."

The source added that the paparazzi photos of the hand make it look worse than it actually is.

Glad to hear it! And since Hilary was otherwise all smiles as she made her way through the airport with her two dogs yesterday, we're guessing the pain couldn't have been too bad—or at least, nothing a little glamorous all-night partying couldn't help ease.

As it happens, it was quite an injury-plagued night. Brooke Shields also caused a stir when she strolled the red carpet at the ball with a cane, though she waved off the walking injury as "inconvenient" but "not a big deal." The things we do for fashion.
