The Most Gorgeous Looks From The Met Gala

The Metropolitan Museum's annual Costume Institute Gala is the most highly anticipated fashion event of the year, and this year’s theme—Charles James: Beyond Fashion—practically begs attendees to pull out all the stops. The legendary couturier was known for utterly glamorous, stunningly architectural ball gowns (the exhibit on his work opens May 8th) so the expectation for dramatic dresses is high. To add to the excitement, First Lady Michelle Obama cut the ribbon at the Costume Institute today on the newly opened Anna Wintour Costume Center. Clearly, it’s going to be a thoroughly glamorous evening, and we’ve been waiting with fingers poised to bring you the best looks in real time. Click through now to see what everyone wore, from Sarah Jessica Parker in jaw-dropping Oscar de la Renta to Kirsten Dunst in show-stopping Rodarte.
