White hot in Stella McCartney. Definitely one of the stand out red carpet fashions of the 2014 Met Gala.
2 David and Victoria Beckham
Becks is looking extra dapper in his Ralph Lauren Black Label Suit, the perfect foil for Victoria's self designed number.
3 Cara Delevingne
Another dazzling, if unconventional Stella McCartney design. Fierce and sexy.
4 Suki Waterhouse
Anita Ko jewelry accessorizes a Burberry dress.
5 Kendall Jenner
Kendall Jenner in a Topshop mermaid gown in a light lustrous cream styled with a dazzling necklace and clutch.
6 Jessica Alba
Jessica looking adorable in a Diana von Furstenberg lace gown in champagne.
7 Selena Gomez
Designer Diane von Furstenburg was a popular choice for fashions at the Met Gala 2014. Selena chose a classic silhouette in a deep burgundy.
8 Anne Hathaway
Now that's how to wear a crop top! Anne steps out in Calvin Klein.
9 Charlize Theron
Dior Haute Couture never fails to make a fabulous statement of glamour and style.
10 Taylor Swift
The songstress looks very grown up in a break from her signature preppy style in this charm from Oscar de la Renta.
11 Karolína Kurková
A stunningly crafted sculptured dress from Marchesa and jewelry from Harry Winston, worn with aplomb by the Czech supermodel.
12 Leighton Meester
It's Emilio Pucci in embroidered gold for Leighton.
13 Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
Some of the red carpet looks at the 2014 Met gala that caused a stir were worn by the Olsen twins - Mary-Kate in vintage Chanel and Ashley in vintage Gianfranco Ferre. Sorry twins but I don't think either of these do you justice. Both look quite frumpy.
14 Hailee Steinfeld
Is Hailee all smiles because she knows she looks super in her black and white gown from Prabal Gurung?
15 Benedict Cumberbatch
And the vote for Best Dressed Male at the 2014 Met Gala goes to ... no need to open the envelope. Now that's how to wear a white tie!
16 Zooey Deschanel
Zooey decided on Tommy Hilfiger.
17 Nicole Richie
Determined not to let her hair upstage her look, Nicole is wearing a Donna Karan atelier gown in sage, with Louboutin heels, and her own jewelry from House of Harlow 1960.
18 Shaliene Woodley
The TFIOS star looks stylish beyond her years in her Rodarte creation.
19 Rachel McAdams
Ralph Lauren does understated elegance so well, don't ya' think?
20 Chloe Grace Moretz
Eek! I guess when you're 17 and a Hollywood celebrity you can get away with a lot of frou-frou (and especially if it bears the Chanel label.)
21 Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles
Jay Z and Beyoncé live up to their power couple status in Givenchy.
22 Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
On this occasion, Blake and Ryan in Gucci beat Jay Z and Queen B into second place as the Best Dressed Couple at the 2014 Met Gala.
23 Liu Wen in Zac Posen
This stunning jade gown from Zac Posen was another of the fantastic sculptured dresses on the red carpet at the Met Gala 2014.
24 Kate Mara
A vision in moss green from Valentino.
25 Georgia May Jagger
The English model looks svelte and gorgeous in black by Thierry Mugler.
26 Olivia Munn
Another stunning gown from Diane von Furstenburg graces the red carpet.
27 Dakota Johnson
Strutting her stuff as well as her Mom and Dad ever did. Dakota strides out in Jason Wu.
28 Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield
Another outing for the crop top. Emma's in the pink with an ensemble from Thakoon, while Andrew's looking dapper in grey.
29 Kate Bosworth
Elegance and grace in a Stella McCartney sheath.
30 Karen Elson
Another sculptural creation from Zac Posen graces the red carpet at the Met Gala 2014.
31 Naomi Watts
Naomi Watts stuns in a Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci
32 Amy Adams
Amy Adams looks radiant in a silver silk duchess satin gown by Oscar de la Renta
33 Janelle Monae
Janelle had one of the most stand out and unusual looks at the 2014 Met Gala with this ensemble from Tadashi Shoji.
34 Joan Smalls
Do you think her lips steal the limelight from her slinky Vera Wang gown?
35 Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
RHW rocks it short in Balmain.
36 Brie Larson
Prada made an appearance in this fancily embellished pants set.
37 Giovanna Battaglia
The Editor of L'Uomo Vogue is floating on air in Dolce and Gabbana
38 Lily Aldridge
Lily turned heads in a custom strapless silver lamé draped gown from Michael Kors.
39 Allison Williams
Allison grabbed attention in an Oscar de la Renta coral gown with a sweeping train
40 Lupita Nyong'o
One of the more outrageous looks at the 2014 Met Gala was this Prada dress. Lupita is making a quite the name for herself with her brave red carpet fashions.
41 Diane Kruger
Diane shines like a star in shimmering silver by Hugo Boss.
42 Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady
Brady and Bundchen in black by Balenciaga.
43 Maggie Q
Another exquisite Zac Posen gown graces the star-studded event.
44 Johnny Depp and Amber Heard
As always, Mr. Depp has to be his own man. I bet there was more attention for his nifty spats and Albert chain/watch than for Amber's gown by Giambattista Valli Couture.
45 Reese Witherspoon
Stella McCartney does Marilyn and Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend? Loving the hair! .
46 Dianna Agron
The Glee actress graces the Gala in Miu Miu.
47 Anna Kendrick
Black and white is a perennial staple and this J Mendel strapless gown was among the numerous monochrome choices for the red carpet looks at the 2014 Met Gala.
48 Colin Firth & Livia Giuggioli
Livia is on fire in Caroline Herrera while Colin looks every inch the dapper Englishman.
49 Jessica Pare
A busy print from Michael Kors but she carries in well.
50 Sarah Jessica Parker
Love the Oscar de la Renta dress but her hair looks like a 5 minute updo for running errands.
51 Idina Menzel
Heavy embroidery and a floaty fishtail for this Donna Karan Atelier number.
52 Lea Michele
The gold Louboutins are a great complement to the gold custom Altuzarra gold sheath with thigh split.
53 Tom Ford
Cutting quite a dash in his white tie.
54 Solange Knowles
Peachy keen in 3.1 Phillip Lim.
55 Elizabeth Olsen
A Mui Mui shortie. Hit or miss? It's a miss for me, partly because the accessories don't really pull the look together.
56 Anna Wintour
The fashion queen makes her entrance in Chanel.
57 Katie Holmes
Another who has graced a Marchesa dress with Harry Winston jewelry.
58 Lena Dunham
Lena steps out in Giambattista Valli Haute Couture.
59 Arizona Muse
Arizona is the lady in red by Ralph and Russo Haute Couture.
60 Dita Von Teese
Dita has less flesh on show than in other outfits as she donned a color-blocked fishtail gown by Zac Posen.
61 Emmy Rossum
A carpet of overblown flowers from Carolina Herrera
62 Kate Upton
Dare to bare in Dolce and Gabbana.
63 Rosamund Pike
Edgy monochrome from Louis Vuitton for the English rose.
64 Rashida Jones
Elegance with a touch of éclat from Tory Burch.
65 Gabrielle Union
Prada is the name on the label of this custom-made two piece. The crop top is covered in Swarovski crystals and the plastic wrap skirt is finished with feather fringes.
66 Lauren Bush
Confident in a Ralph Lauren waterfall chemise.
67 Dree Hemingway
I like this over-fashioned day dress style by Proenza Schouler.
68 Frank Ocean
Fierce in a Givenchy dinner suit.
69 Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Naturally, the latest celebrity newlyweds had to appear at the most important fashion event of the year. Kim showed a bit of leg with a thigh high split gown from Lanvin while Kanye looked mean and moody in his tails.
This was just a few of the glorious fashions from the red carpet at the 2014 Met Gala. Which was your favorite?
