The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute ball is considered the premier New York City social event of the year. Fashion lovers anticipate the red carpet event. For the MET Gala 2015, Anna Wintour issued the dress code: “China: Through the Looking Glass.”

Sarah Jessica Parker arrived on the arm of pal Andy Cohen. She wore a show-stopping Philip Treacy headpiece complete with long tassels, ribbony flames, and a load of red pom-poms and donned a dress she designed in collaboration with H&M Conscious. This attire proved that with the right (and big) accessory a simple black dress can be a red carpet winner!
Beyoncé in custom-made Givenchy. The gown is not China-themed but it’s definitely like “looking through the glass.” Props for a flawless body and “taras bulba” hair!
Gong Li in Roberto Cavalli. Love the rich marsala color and velvet material!
Wendi Murdoch in Oscar de la Renta and Kotur ‘Birdcage’ bag. Fiona Kotur’s bag is the best accessories for this event!
Liya Kebede in 3.1 Phillip Lim. So chic in white and I super like the mens-inspired ensemble.
Lizzy Caplan in Donna Karan Atelier. The perfect draping using silk fabric! Love the bun, the tassel earrings and the whole look!
Emily Ratajkowski. The floral embroider on white makes this outfit fresh and fab!
Georgia May Jagger rocked the oriental kimono! Check out her lace-up, pom-pom shoes!
Anne Hathaway in Ralph Lauren looks like a golden Buddah. It’s not easy to work with lamé fabric but Ralph Lauren’s craftsmanship is superior. So flawless!
Emma Roberts in Ralph Lauren. Emerald-colored gowns pop just pop in the red carpet. A dragon embroidered clutch can punctuate a monochromatic attire.
Janelle Monae kept it fresh and cool with this 3-piece oriental outfit complete with cape!
Karen Elson in Dolce & Gabbana is a golden goddess! It’s game over with Dolce & Gabbana’s intricate beading and bijou!

It didn’t take long for this elegant gown that quickly sent the internet into a fury because of it’s resemblance to an omelette.

To be honest, for me, Rihanna killed it! She looks like an empress ready to conquer the world! The canary yellow robe by designer Gup Pei looked majestic on her!
