It’s time for what’s known as the biggest fashion event of the year (or the fashion Oscars): the Met Gala! This year’s event at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City was, as usual, the annual fundraising evening for the Costume Institute Gala Benefit chose “China: Through The Looking Glass” for their theme, and celebrities and socialites followed suit, just like they did at last year's with the amazing "Charles James: Beyond Fashion" gala and exhibit. The Met Ball is regarded as one of the most exclusive social events in NY that brings out some of the biggest celebrities in the entertainment industry.

This is one of our favorite events to see celebrities and fashionistas take risks on the red carpet. Sarah Jessica Parker, for example, wore an enormous headpiece and black silk dress by H&M; Rihanna looked stunning in an immense king-looking yellow cape by Guo Pei Haute Couture plus a tiara; and J.Lo showed up bearing a lot of side skin in a nude and red embroidered Versace atelier gown and sleek hair. Others on the other hand played it safe like Selena Gomez who wore a beautiful white gown by Vera Wang and Sofía Vergara looked stunning in a nude and silver Marchesa gown, even though we wish she would mix it up with the hair dos and silhouettes once in a while.
