On Monday night, the fashion elite will descend upon the steps of the Metropolitan Museum in New York City to partake in the most stylish event of the year (no, it's not the Oscars): the 2014 Met Gala!

This year, the glitterati will be decked out in a "White Tie and Diamonds" theme (how very James Bond!) to celebrate the premiere of the museum's fashion exhibit, "Charles James: Beyond Fashion," which is being hosted by Vogue's very own Anna Wintour.

Best known for his highly architectural designs, we can predict that the celebs will channel James' strong aesthetic by wearing structured dresses.

Celebrities who are attending include Olivia Munn, Lupita Nyong'o, Kate Upton, Kristen Stewart, Kim Kardashian, Maggie Q, Rachel McAdams and more, who will no doubt be wearing the best and most creative couture that you don't normally see on the red carpet.

So, to celebrate the prestigious event, we take a look at the best Met Gala dresses of all time. Some of our faves include Anne Hathaway's sheer Valentino, Carey Mulligan's sparkly Prada, Sarah Jessica Parker's tartan Alexander McQueen and Miley Cyrus' punk mesh dress.
