There's a reason why the "first Monday in May" is legendary in fashion circles. The annual Met Gala is like the Oscars of style; it simply doesn't get more fashionable than this!

Held as a fundraiser at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, the event celebrates the latest exhibit at the Costume Institute wing of the museum. Stars strut their stuff on the famous stairs of the New York institution to show off their (or their designers) interpretations of the theme.
