The Best Dressed at the 2016 Met Gala

I sometimes like to pretend that all the theme parties I've even gotten far too dressed up for have just been training for the big leagues, the Superbowl of red carpet fashion, in other words — the Met Gala. This year's theme Manus x Machina celebrates the blending of man-made creation with technology and the ability to create with artificial intelligence. Some guests really embraced the tech edge (see Emma Roberts and Kate Hudson) while others used it as a subtle suggestion (see everyone in metallics and sequins). Read on to see the best dressed from the night.

Socialite and actress Allison Sarofim went all out in a sequin netted pants/tunic set and floral-lined, feather-adorned, floor length cape all in green. On paper it sounds like a Project Runway unconventional challenge gone horribly wrong, but in person it is so sartorially right.

Naomi Campbell will forever be the ultimate super model. Someone please explain to me how she can eat whatever she wants and still look so stunning in this Roberto Cavalli cut out gown?

Willow Smith is already doing Chanel Couture proud as the new face of the brand. After all, who else could pull off wearing capris and a kimono jacket to a formal event?

Co-founder of luxury boutique Suite 1521, Kim Kassel's Giles Deacon is still a bit of a mystery to me. Part sea urchin, part delicate lace and all I want to do is reach out and touch it.

Bee Shaffer, Anna Wintour's daughter and film/television producer, looked every bit the fahsion princess in Alexander McQueen, right down to the four foot train trailing behind her.

Of course no roundup would be complete without the woman of the evening, Anna Wintour. Vogue's EIC stepped outside her fashion comfort zone in a fringed Chanel Haute Couture gown and large collar necklace.
