The stars were out in full force tonight for the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art Gala in New York City. According to The Huffington Post tonight (May 5), “The Met Gala is the single most important fashion event of the year. Red carpet regulars include Beyoncé, Sarah Jessica Parker, Marc Jacobs and Chrissy Teigen (just to name a few), and this year, we are expecting an appearance from Michelle Obama(fingers crossed).”

The annual ball opens the much-anticipated Costume Institute exhibit “always brings in a bevy of style stars and of course, some stunning couture. This year the theme of the night is a tribute to Charles James, America's First Couturier, and we're excepting to see bright colors and some over-the-top gowns,” adds adds: “It’s the most prestigious night in fashion.” The event which coincides with this year’s Mexican Cinco de Mayo celebration brought stars out in lavish fashion. “Sarah Jessica Parker was one of the first to arrive in a very Carrie-Bradshaw-esque Oscar de la Renta gown, while Anna Kendrick also went with black and white in a cut out J.Mendel dress. Kim’s little sister Kendall Jenner also attended and showed that she definitely has star power in a strapless satin gown custom made by Topshop!”

“Selena Gomez also stunned as usual in a deep plum DVF full-length dress and looked more confident than ever. The gown fell perfectly on her and we were so impressed with how mature she looked,” states“We’ve got to say there more young faces than ever, and they all wow’d. Of course Taylor Swift stunned in a sleek light pink dress, also by Oscar. Zoe Saldana looked amazing in a cashmere halter bodysuit by Michael Kors, with a black floral lace over a white taffeta skirt. Lea Michele looked flawless as usual in a gold Altuzarra gown."

“When we say ‘Beyond Fashion,’ it’s not to disparage fashion, but it was actually James’ tentative title for his own autobiography, because he felt that the research — studies of anatomy, the way he resolved sculptural shapes with his tailoring and ballgowns — was something that transcended trends and fashion. He wanted to use fashion and push fashion even further than what it was as a commercial enterprise,” the curator behind the gala, Harold Koda told WWD today (May 5) which was reported by Hollywoodlife.

Staten Island fashion followers stay tuned for more about this fabulous event tomorrow. Tonight was a night that truly brought out the celebrity and fashion elite in full force.
