The fashion was out in full force at last night’s Met Costume Institute Gala in New York City, with even the most consistently well-dressed stars going above and beyond to bring their boldest looks to the red carpet. But while everyone looked lovely, a few of the ladies in attendance earned special superlatives from our style scouts. Who are the winners? Check it!
Best Impression of a Disco Ball: Carey Mulligan
We’ve got a Saturday night fever, and the only prescription is more Carey.
Most Mondrian Dress: Kristen Stewart
KStew’s pieced-together ensemble was a sweet nod to some of the work in the Met’s modern galleries.
Best Biker Chic: Rooney Mara
The star of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” has been combining leather and lace like a boss ever since her turn as Lisbeth Salander, and her look last night was no exception.
Most Perfectly Pooled Train: Nina Dobrev
With a lush, shimmering train following her throughout the evening, the “Vampire Diaries” star looked like she was melting into a glorious puddle of haute couture.
Best Trompe-l’oeil: Camilla Bell
With sheer straps that matched her skin perfectly, Camilla’s illusory gown definitely made us look twice.
Hottest Mama: Beyoncé
Blue Ivy’s beautiful mom was seriously styling in black lace and purple feathers.
Most Confectionery: Florence Welch
The singer looked pastry-perfect in this tiered dress that reminded us of a wedding cake. In the best way.
Best Plunge: Lea Michele
The star of “Glee” was definitely sporting some post-high-school style in a down-to-there neckline and up-to-there slit.
Most Haunting: Lily Collins
The porcelain-skinned star of “Mirror Mirror” looked ready to pull ghostly double-duty in this high-necked dress with long sleeves and lace accents.
Raddest Ruffles: Christina Ricci
Not content to simply adorn Christina’s decolletage, this ruffle ambitiously climbed over the actress’s shoulder, tied itself into a gigantic bow, and then wandered across the carpet in search of someone else to… er, ruff up.
