Pomp and circumstance

Global celebs hit the red carpet at Met Gala in New York City

And a few American favorites turned some heads also.

For just one night a year, sylph-like celebrities swarm the red carpet at the Metro­polit­an Museu­m of Art’s Costu­me Insti­tute benef­it ball, or the Met Gala, in New York City to swirl while swathed in the most stunning and scintillating ensembles. The annual fundraiser, also known as the most fashion-forward night of the year, benefits the museum’s Costume Institute. This year’s ball trumpeted the opening of the Costume Institute’s “China: Through the Looking Glass” exhibit, so, fittingly, the dress code that many followed included lots of crimson and lace, and one unforgettable omelet of a dress. Although Rihanna and Beyonce capture the lion’s share of the media’s attention, take a look at some women from around the world who made a splash on the red carpet too. Which one is your favorite?
