You can see by the sheer volume of celebrities and designer gowns that the Met Gala is the year’s biggest night in fashion. No Hollywood awards night can ever compete, and the level of creativity of avant garde creations donned by some of the most recognizable people in America make for one incredible evening.

Tonight the celebs hit the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute for its 2016 Gala in NYC. This year’s exhibit was themed “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology”.

See what the stars wore on the red carpet, as well as the Luxe Lookbook best and worst dressed.
