It's the biggest costume ball in the fashion world.  The MET Gala marks the grand opening of the Costume Institute's annual fashion exhibit.  As for this year's theme:  “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.”

Here's how your faves interpreted it (or didn't interpret):

VOGUE named Kanye and Kim Best Dressed of the night, but we'd have to respectfully disagree.  Kim rocked a heavy metal silver Balmain concoction. But we feel like we've seen it all before.
