The Metropolitan Costume institute Gala (or Met Ball for short) is arguably the single most glamourous red carpet event on the fashion universe’s calendar, bar none. This is one occassion where only over-the-top and full-on will do. This year’s event had special meaning, as it marked the opening of the exhibit honoring the late Alexander McQueen. The exhibit will be a retrospective of his work and opens to the public on May 4th. Here are our favorite looks from this sparkly night :

Penelope Cruz, once again channeling Sophia Loren, and looking old Hollywood glam.
