The Superbowl of fashion, a.k.a. the Met Ball, a.k.a. Anna Wintour's annual cotillion, is here. Every major celebrity you know of has shelled out $25,000 for a ticket, braved insane traffic, and ascended the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art for the Costume Institute's gala celebrating "China: Through the Looking Glass." From musicians to models, see who nailed the red carpet here, since we know social media is going to be no help.
