Last night the world’s most fashionable individuals gathered together at The Metropolitan Museum of Art for The Costume Institute’s Met Ball. From designers to models and the actresses and socialites that make the designs iconic, everyone whose anyone in fashion was there last night. While many like to make wild statements with their Met Ball selections we’ve honed in on some of our favorites from the night.
Recovering from her questionable Oscar selection, Zoe Saldana looked stunning in this one shoulder Calvin Klein gown.
Oprah not only got a custom Oscar de la Renta Dress, but she got a date with the designer who looked dapper in his own right.
Designer and New York Socialite, Tory Burch.
Trendsetter and new designer Nicole Richie wore a glitzy Marc Jacobs number further blinged out with Harry Winston jewels.
The best dressed couple of the night had to go to rockstar and designer Gwen Steffani, who wore a piece from her L.A.M.B line and rocker hubby Gavin Rossdale. They looked hip and modern but still tasteful.
Tina Fey forwent a gown and opted for a trendier look with this jumpsuit by Yves Saint Laurent.
Jennifer Lopez glowed in this Zuhair Murad gown. The singer/actress and new mom has never looked so good!
Teen superstar Taylor Swift looked like the All-American country girl that she is in this Ralph Lauren Collection dress. Her bright red lips are very on trend as well.
Mila Kunis and Vera Wang both in Vera Wang.
Gap sponsored the event, which may seem odd for a company that has built their name on jeans and tee-shirts. To beat the stigma, Gap’s Patrick Robinson enlisted the help of some of his A list designer friends. Kerry Washington looked amazing in this Thakoon for Gap gown.
The Sex and the City girls were out in full force just weeks before the premier of their second movie. As new creative director for Halston Heritage, Sarah Jessica Parker has been showing up all over in the collection. It looks like she saved the best for the Met Ball in this gold Halston piece. Kristin Stewart looked incredible in this black sweetheart neck number.
Legendary designers stick together. Carolina Herrera and Calvin Klein.
This fashionable group of friends like to stick together. Stella McCartney, Liv Tyler and Kate Hudson all supported gal pal McCartney by wearing pieces from her collection.
Blake Lively showed off her gorgeous gams in this eye catching Marchesa dress.
Anne Hathaway looked like Hollywood royalty in this Valentino creation.
Best dressed man on the night would have to be funny man Jimmy Fallon who showed off his new dapper late night look.
Model Jessica Stam accessorized this simple jersey Rachel Roy frock with Bulgari jewelry.
Lindsay Vonn showed that she’s an Olympian on the slopes and red carpet. So who do you think was the best dressed? Let us know in the comments below and be sure to check out The Costume Institute’s exhibit American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity at The Met.
