the Met Gala...

It's been called 'the Oscars of fashion.' The Costume Institute Gala's theme this year was "Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion." It was a truely magnificent spectacle. There was no shortage of celebs, models, designers and people who's need for attention knows no bounds. Take a look at some of the best and (because I couldn't resist) worst looks of the night.

Kate Moss and Marc Jacobs; both in Marc Jacobs. High fashion toga party?

Gilles Mendel and (pregnant) Heidi Klum in J. Mendel...Stunning.

Zac Posen and Helena Christensen in Zac Posen. She looks like an Olympic figure-skater, and those sequins spell "Vogue."

Diane Kruger looks lovely in Chanel with her boyfriend, Pacey Witter Joshua Jackson.

Vogue editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour in Chanel Couture.

Emma Roberts, I think that Versace dress is wearing you.

Madonna in Louis Vuitton. Someone call Ron Burgandy, she's dressed as a dirty pirate hooker.

Ashley Olsen looks sofisticated...considering she's wearing a bedsheet.

Mary-Kate Olsen, as the Tin Man's wife (in colonial times).

Spotted: Leighton Meester in Louis Vuitton. So frightening it makes me really sad for her. Blair Waldorf would never approve.

Blake Lively in Versace. We get it. You are beautiful and have an amazing figure. Must you advertise every inch of it so freely? And in such a terrible dress?

Model Chanel Iman in Zac Posen. My favorite dress of the night.

Model Alek Wek. That dress + her skin = perfection.

Kate Boseworth. Head-to-toe gorgeous.

I was so excited for Rihanna to make her first official public appearance since the Chris Brown incident, and now I kind of wish she hadn't. I mean, I love high fashion, but this Dolce & Gabbana is totally over the top.

Model Sasha Pivovarova and designer Giambattista Valli. This look is pretty wild, but minus the tiara, I sort of enjoy it.

Anne Hathaway in Marc Jacobs. I love the zipper detail and bubble skirt.
