Katy Perry stuns on red carpet at Met Gala
The fashion world's black-tie extravaganza, the Met Gala, kicked off last night at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour was one of the first to arrive in glimmering Chanel.
This year's show features the avant-garde work of Rei Kawakubo, who founded Comme des Garcons.
Wintour said of the Japanese designer: "She's a genius. Not only does she think outside of the box, she doesn't acknowledge the box."
Singer Katy Perry had one of the most striking ensembles of the evening and arrived in a custom Maison Margiela 'Artisanal' ensemble by John Galliano.
Celebrities Gisele Bundchen, Katie Holmes, Claire Danes, Courtney Love and Lily Collins were among the attendees.
Tickets for this year's event cost $30,000 (€27,500) each and tables were about $275,000 (€252,000).
