Just when we were least expecting it, here is the "Poiret: King of Fashion" Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, which just happens to be the most celeb-packed red carpet we've seen since The Oscars. Seriously, how did all these folks get to NYC so quickly? Here are some of the ladies, but check out the gallery below to get the full splendor. In general, the women looked smashing on the arms of their dates (if they had one) -- be they boyfriends, husbands, or esteemed older gentlemen/designers (like Ashley Olsen on the arm of Christian Louboutin himself). Anna Wintour must have been a happy hostess.

I must say that I am especially proud of my Olsens. Ashley looks hot hot hot, but MK is holding her own, too. On the other side of the spectrum, Kirsten and Kate Bosworth apparently got the wrong memo and thought it was an actual costume party. Also, is Jennifer Garner 39 feet tall? Who knew! Finally, Jessica Simpson is a little overtly sexy for my taste, but oh well. Oh, to be a fly on the wall of this party! What do you think of all the ladies fabulous looks? Vote Here
