It’s called “The Oscars of Fashion” for good reason.
From Prada to Chanel to Rodarte, celebs—including Selena Gomez, Victoria Beckham, and Dianna Agron (to name just a few!)—pulled out all the stops for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala red carpet Monday night.
The looks played to this year’s theme, “Charles James: Beyond Fashion,” in honor of designer Charles James, who was known for his signature ball gowns.
The stars in attendance were all over the sartorial map this year in terms of silhouettes, colors, and fabrics (James’ most-used fabrics were silk, velvet, and organdy), but our favorite 10 all had one thing in common: They absolutely knocked it out of the park.

The “Charles James: Beyond Fashion” is showing at the Met from May 8 until August 10, 2014. Which celeb is your pick for best-dressed?
