Best Dressed at Met Gala 2014

Vote: Who Was the Belle of the Ball at This Year's Met Gala?

With a strict, antipunk dress code that had the fashion community buzzing for weeks, the red carpet at this year's Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala was no laughing matter. Stars in serious ball gowns, many of which looked like they were plucked straight from the Charles James: Beyond Fashion exhibition, strutted up the grand staircase, but only a select few made our best dressed list.

First, there was Blake Lively, who wowed in a blush custom Gucci Première silk chiffon gown with cascading scarves and a voluminous train. Emma Stone, while straying a bit from the more traditional "white tie" attire in a crop-top ensemble, positively popped in a Thakoon pink knit jersey top and draped fuchsia skirt. Meanwhile, Naomi Watts rarely strays from our best dressed lists, and tonight was no exception. In Givenchy Haute Couture, it was hard to decide what to be enamored with more — the white-to-black ombre effect or the swan-like silk tulle palettes.

Diane Kruger also shined in a powder blue Hugo Boss column dress that piqued our interest with its intricate detailing and pleated side paneling. And, finally, we couldn't ignore Karolína Kurková's showstopping Marchesa satin organza dress, a perfect interpretation of the night's theme with its sculpted silhouette and hand-painted flowers. So, who did Mr. James proud? Vote now on who you think should be fashion's fairest of them all.
