    The Metropolitan Museum's annual Costume Institute Gala is the most glamorous, fashion forward, star-studded event of the year--it doesn't get bigger, or more directional, than this--and last night's fete was full of all the over-the-top moments we've come to expect from this party. Feting the museum's "Punk: Chaos to Couture" exhibit, the Met Gala drew the likes of Beyonce Knowles, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Ashley Olsen, who all turned up in noteworthy ensembles. Whether these tastemakers paid homage to the punk theme (Sienna Miller's studded Burberry jacket) or stuck to a more classic look (Katie Holmes' elegant white Calvin Klein Collection gown) you'll want to see all the high-octane looks from the highly anticipated event.
