Rihanna stole the show and topped best-dressed lists worldwide when she stepped out in a jaw-dropping yellow dress from Guo Pei haute couture. The gown was teamed with a dramatic yellow embroidered cape, which covered most of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's infamous staircase as she posed for the cameras.
Jennifer Lawrence, who was co-hosting the event, also pulled out all the stops, giving fans a glimpse of her toned stomach in a sleek gown with cut-out detail – the skirt of the gown was black, but the bodice had a colourful floral pattern, a subtle nod to the evening's theme. The Hunger Games star completed the look by wearing her hair in a slightly dishevelled updo.
Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West once again established themselves as fashion's ultimate power couple. Kim showed off her world-famous figure in a sultry gown with silver embellishment, sheer detailing and a feathered train. The star was accompanied by husband Kanye who wore one of his trademark all-black ensembles.
