Yes, Beyonce really dropped her ring on the red carpet. And yes, Jay Z picked it up and pretended to propose to her (again). Yes, Lupita channeled the roaring ’20s. And yes, Selena and Taylor did their best twirling (despite Meredith’s antics). But the 2014 Met Gala was held to celebrate Charles James. The British-born American designer is best known for his glamorous sculptural ball gowns, masterpieces of construction and textile architecture, and the Met Gala attendees went for BIG skirts and unbridled opulence to fit with the theme. Peep some of the most extravagant, most voluminous looks!
