Our Favorite Looks from the Met Ball

May 08, 2012

Every May, Anna Wintour rounds up the biggest celebrities in the world for the annual Met Ball, a gala in honor of New York's Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute. It's like the Oscars for fashion, and since it's Vogue-sponsored, there's no shortage of amazing dresses to gawk at. But as we did last year, we like to sift through the high fashion and A-list actresses to zero in on the ladies and gentlemen that matter most in our universe, the folks who bring a little weirdness and personal style to an event that has plenty of beautiful, if less interesting, Grecian column dresses and frou frou tulle. First up, pictured above, are Beyonce and Kanye West, who both wore Givenchy and looked like the groom and bride on top of the wedding cake at a very, very cool wedding.
