Last night was New York's most fabulous social event, the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit. It's a chance for numerous celebrities to don daring, avant garde looks and show off to their friends. This year metallics and long trains were very popular, with many attendees looking both classical and futuristic. Let's take a look at some of the red carpet highlights!
