The Met Ball is often considered the Oscars of fashion, so we expect (and anxiously wait!) to see what over-the-top looks will hit the red carpet. Last night was a sea of gold, peplum, and feathers, but here are the stars that stood out for taking real style risks:
Beyoncé: She’s baaack! The superstar was last to arrive on the red carpet, and she was totally worth the wait. The sheer and feathered Givency Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci gown was the perfect look to flaunt the singer’s enviable post-baby body.
Karolina Kurkova: Taking the color of the night to the next level, the supermodel stunned in a head-to-toe (turban included) gold Bridget Bardot-esque ensemble by Rachel Zoe.
Emma Stone: Never one to conform, Stone was one of the few ladies rocking a short dress. The actress looked like a doll in a red Lanvin mini adorned with more than 3,000 plastic flowers, according to her date (and designer) Alber Elbaz.
Florence Welch: Somehow the singer always makes her signature style work — and that was the case for last night’s intricate multi-tiered Alexander McQueen confection.

Lana del Rey: Gwyneth’s Oscar cape comparisons aside, the YouTube sensation put her own vampy spin on the trend by pairing her black cape with a gorgeous silver bustier Altuzarra gown.
Elizabeth Banks: The Hunger Games star’s dress made a statement on the red carpet thanks to the unexpected mixed prints, peplum and mini-cape.
: Dunst’s retro Rodarte ensemble was polished off with quintessential ladylike touches including coiffed waves, a waist-clinching belt and soft makeup.
Anja Rubik: The model channeled Angelina in a leg- (and stomach-) baring number and sexy T-strap black heels.
So what do you think? Which was your favorite fashion moment of the night?
