Last night was the most important night in fashion – the Metropolitan’s Costume Institute Gala. More important than the Oscars? Yes. We’re talking about all the fashion heavyweights – models, designers, and the celebrities who wear their clothes all come together to celebrate the Costume Institute’s new exhibit. This year, the Gala was hosted by Marc Jacobs and Kate Moss – appropriately enough, as the theme was “The Model As Muse.”

Movie stars, designers and their muses came dressed to impress and what follows below are highlights from the red carpet. Trends included lady tuxedos, big shoulders, gold and lame and lots of blue in an assortment of shades from midnight navy to 80′s teal. One of my favorites was Rihanna in a lady tuxedo by Dolce & Gabanna with gorgeous exaggerated shoulders and sleeves complete with bow tie. Another favorite was Stella McCartney’s lace jumpsuit – it’s something that I really need in my life – now (because I go to so many galas, haha).

Louis Vuitton had a strong showing with Madonna, Leighton Meester and Kerry Washington all sporting looks right off the runway. The Double C’s were also spotted on the red carpet with Kirsten Dunst, Diane Kruger and Anna Wintour all sparkling in Chanel Haute Couture. Model muse Sasha Pivovarova wore a gorgeous feather coat by Giambattista Valli that overshadowed the dress that she wore underneath – and that’s ok. She was a great example of picking one piece to shine and letting it be the focal point with understated accessories.

There were many gorgeous looks last night and I’ve chosen my favorites to show you. You can see them all on the Style website. Let us know your favorites! Take the survey below and/or leave a comment.

    I loved Rihanna’s look, but everyone and their mama seemed to hate it! I think she took a big risk, and it paid off in a way that maybe only person with a big creative appetite can appreciate. Lake Bell in that Rag & Bone tux was another favorite of mine…maybe I’m into tux’s? lol

    I know, I can’t believe people didn’t like it. I loved it and thought she is one of the few people who could actually pull it off.

    Screw all the haters– Rhi Rhi looked gorgeous! She stepped way out of the box (in fact, I’m not sure the box is even in sight!) and really made herself cutting-edge. I’m feeling it!

    Anyone who wore Christophe Decarnin’s Balmain was a standout. the execution in the construction made the women look like style warriors in a fleet of gowns. ha! what weapon would a style army have?
