Oh what a night. With an exhibition flaunting couture ball gowns and a white tie dress code in place, the buildup for this year's Met Gala red carpet was even more amplified, with gawkers banking on serious glamour (a pleasant departure from last year's punk-themed folly).

Overarchingly, guests obliged, donning enormous princess-status gowns in homage to exhibit subject Charles James' work. Surprisingly, few of the ladies went for the expected gloves, and most of the gents ditched the coat tails portion of the dress code. Nonetheless, the front steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art saw some fancy feet parade in last night, good and bad. Let's dissect the likes of Kim Kardashian, Beyonce, Lupita Nyong'o, and Kristen Stewart's fashion choices.
