met's costume institute best dressed

Jessica Biel in Versace Atelier and Justin Timberlake in bespoke William Rast. The most gorgeous couple around...and Justin looks pretty cute in those glasses!

Every year the stars show up in their very best for the Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute Gala. This year's theme was "Model as Muse," so designers were spotted escorting their favorite looks on their favorite models down the red carpet. I love this event because it's a chance to really push your personal style and wear something that is just a little more haute couture than maybe you are used to...

Here are my picks for best looks of the evening:

Claire Danes in Armani Prive and Hugh Dancy in custom Burberry. I love the beige draping with the sparkle.

Leighton Meester in Louis Vuitton. Most people probably hate this look, but I love that she went completely over the top and somehow she just pulled it off. Confidence! Or maybe I just like Gossip Girl too much.

Ashley Olsen in The Row and Justin Bartha in Tom Ford. A gorgeous and sophisticated dress of her own design! Her sleek bob looks great too.

Emma Hemming in Donna Karan and Bruce Willis. I think we're supposed to hate this woman because she's a homewrecker, but they look pretty stunning together.

Proenza Schouler's Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough with model Raquel Zimmerman in their design. I love the tough vibe of the look and the vivid purple.
