GALLERY: The Met Gala 2017 Red Carpet

The first Monday in May has arrived and with it, the most anticipated event in the fashion calendar: The Met Ball. The evening will celebrate Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo, who is the subject of the latest Costume Institute exhibition, ?Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art of the In-Between,? and we'll see stars from the fashion and entertainment world descend those famous steps, hoping to make a statement and impress.

See above for the gowns. Stars like Rihanna and Solange Knowles hit the nail on the head; proving that it's much more striking to dress interestingly - and more fun too.
