Industry Stars and Studs shined bright at last night’s annual Met Gala event (formally known as the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit).  In its 78th year, this philanthropic venture has grown to enthusiastically show that it stands behind its mission statement, to be located in the City of New York, for the purpose of establishing and maintaining in said city a Museum and library of art, of encouraging and developing the study of the fine arts, and the application of arts to manufacture and practical life, of advancing the general knowledge of kindred subjects, and, to that end, of furnishing popular instruction.”

This year’s theme was “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology” and the celebrities came in the most futuristic ensembles possible. Check out our Hot Pics from this year’s Met Gala extravaganza!

This year’s co-host, Taylor Swift drew mixed opinions when she stepped on the red carpet in her metallic Louis Vuitton dress and boots. Kylie Jenner was stunning in her Balmain designed dress. Ciara stopped the press with her custom handmade H&M designed gown and silver wig.  Also in Balmain was supermodel icon Cindy Crawford, who proved one can be 50 and still fabulous.

Beyoncé and Ciara attended the event solo last night but that didn’t stop other couples from taking advantage of that particular spotlight. Kanye and Kim caused quite a stir as they walked the red carpet in Balmain (a very popular brand for the evening) while her bestie and her beau, Lala and Carmelo Anthony hit the carpet wearing Nicolas Jebran.  The Weeknd was the musical guest of the evening and he and girlfriend Bella Hadid hit the carpet in matching black Givenchy outfits. Ex-One Directoner Zayn Malik and his model date Gigi Hadid kept with the night’s theme with Zayn wearing Versace and Hadid rocking Tommy Hilfiger.
