The Met Gala is arguably one of the most fashionable nights of the year. (Sorry, Oscars!)
The Metropolitan Museum of Art's annual Costume Institute Gala celebrates high fashion and attendees are expected to take plenty of style risks (no boring strapless dresses allowed!)
We've witnessed spectacular gowns such as honourable co-chair Beyonce's romantic feathered Givenchy in 2012 and Sarah Jessica Parker's tartan Alexander McQueen frock in 2006, to name just a few.
This year's theme celebrates punk couture and although we wish Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour wore a fauxhawk or Jennifer Lopez accessorized with safety pins in her ears, we can't complain about the seriously sexy gowns the stars wore at the Met Gala 2013.
Check out the red carpet pics below:
All hail Queen Bey! Her dress really does look like it's on fire.
From the front! Matching boots and a thigh-high slit, yes please!
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian
Stop the presses: Kimye has arrived! Anna Wintour lifted her Kardashian ban and let Kim attend the Met with baby-daddy Kanye West. We're a bit disappointed that Kim didn't rock out with some studs or at least some hair dye. Florals, Kim? For spring? Groundbreaking.
The singer takes punk RAWK to the max in a sexy nude gown with a sheer, fishnet overlay and her short hair spiked up. Rock on!
Katie's revenge outfit! Tom Cruise's ex is a Grecian goddess in this simple halter gown.
We had to give you a better photo of Holmes' dress so you can see the long, layered train. But what's with her odd bouffant?
Katy's a Byzantine princess!
A THOUSAND TIMES YES TO KRISTEN STEWART. A red lace jumpsuit that puffs out at the waist? Only the lithe "Twilight" actress could pull this off. But where's Robert Pattinson and his pout?
Jennifer Lawrence, Sarah Jessica Parker
This is the best photo we've ever seen! "The Hunger Games" star looks like she's wearing a mourning dress and having the time of her life while SJP is wearing an elaborate fauxhawk. We love the Met Gala!
This metallic and black gown is pretty punk for Taylor Swift. Look, she made her hair all wavy in tribute!
The "To Rome With Love" actress looks as if she belongs on the set of "Downton Abbey" not at a tribute to punk couture.
We can definitely picture the "Parks and Recreation" actress party backstage with Sid and Nancy in this fabulous snakeskin cape dress.
Guess the model didn't read the "No Boring Strapless Dresses Allowed" rules.
Maybe the actress is channeling her English roots into a more modest punk interpretation.
If punk met the office than the model would fit right in.
Johnny Depp's maybe-girlfriend and actress Amber Heard takes the safe route in a vintage-looking red gown.
Models normally can pull off any look but Constance needs to try again.
The "Big Love" actress nails it in a sheer lace number with a head turban. It's more of a modern take on punk.
Is that our little Canadian TV star, Nina Dobrev? The "Vampire Diaries" actress is sizzlin' in a sheer hoop skirt and lace applique nude jumpsuit.
We love the origami-inspired green frock on Uma but we think it's more suited for the Oscars. Let's see some more risk-taking, Uma!
Lauren Bush Lauren
The model/designer (who is also George Bush's niece) falls a bit flat in this pretty but boring black lace gown.
The "New Moon" actress is all grown up in a sexy black gown with sheer cut-outs and what looks like embroidered wings flanking her waist. HOT.
Lauren Santo Domingo
The Vogue contributing editor channels the dark, gothic underbelly of punk and perhaps a nod to Scarlett O'Hara.
The "Once Upon A Time" actress is goth glam in this majorly sexy black tulle gown and a spikes fauxhawk.
Dylan has fashion running through her veins (her father is designer Ralph Lauren) so why is she wearing such a boring dress??
A Donald Trump offspring was actually allowed to dye their hair!!
The "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" star is this year's Met Gala co-chair and she takes the job seriously in a white lace gown with a frilly slit and exaggerated shoulders. The zippers on the waist are punk, right?
Who knew that Dr. Reed (of "Grey's Anatomy") could dress so well? So the Indian sari isn't punk, whatevs, it's still gorgeous.
We think the model channeled a bit too much punk here.
When your mom is the editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine, you would think that you'd have more dress options to choose from, so why did Bee wear such a blah gown?
Amar'e Stoudemire and Alexis Stoudmire
The New York Knicks forward and his wife are unofficially the best-dressed couple of the evening.
Can't you tell that Zandra is an English fashion designer? She LIVED punk back in the day.
The model has legs for days...
We're too afraid to say anything about Anna's dress for fear she will send us to find the unwritten eighth Harry Potter manuscript.
Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods
The World Cup skier and champion golfer are dating, and they aren't afraid to show it!
We were really hoping that the actress would wear her aunt Julia Roberts' "Pretty Woman" hooker costume.
We're not sure what the "Game of Thrones" actress was going for with this fire-red gown (maybe it's a nod to the Khaleesi's dragons?) but we wish she used her imagination to find a better dress.
Diane von Furstenberg
One can never tell the American fashion designer what to wear. Diane is always in Studio 54 mode.
We don't know what to say about the actress' dress because we are sucked into the tie-dye hole that's hypnotizing us..
Who's that? Oh just multi-millionaire/sometimes actress Ashley Olsen who just floated down from her penthouse to say hello.
Help! The L'Uomo Vogue editor is stuck in a bee hive!
Mesh, leather gloves and floral. The "Django Unchained" actress is the epitome of punk rock chic.
Ok guys, we're a bit tired of seeing all this black lace.
Ooohhh we love this vintage-inspired satin dress on the super hot model du jour.
Canada represent! The B.C.-born model knows that leopard is basically the foundation of punk couture.
We don't quite get the "Les Miserable" star's inspiration but we still dig it.
There goes our Kiki being all quirky again.
It's Zoe from "House of Cards" a.k.a. our favourite show! We don't want to get too close to the actress because we're afraid her spiked dress will literally kill us.
Punk needs more rockers with 'fros.
This is what we're going to say about the "Underworld" actress' dress: It's nice.
Is this the wacky singer we know and love? Where is she?? Who is this sedate run-of-the-mill woman who replaced her?
