MET Gala 2013: Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, Alicia Keys, Eve Play Dress Up

It was another star-studded affair at the 2013 Met Gala in New York City on Monday night (May 6) and hip-hop came out to represent. Kanye West finally scored Kim Kardashian an invite to the big bash, while Beyonce wore more clothing than she did last year and Nicki Minaj decided to go as blonde as possible. Other notable attendees included Alicia Keys, Eve, Jennifer Lopez and Bey’s sister Solange Knowles. Hit the jump for photos and see other stars’ outfits over at MTV Style.

Kanye West took the stage to perform during the Gala, at which point he took a moment to shout out his girlfriend Kim Kardashian, telling her how awesome she was, despite the criticism she apparently received…for her dress?
