The 10 Best-Dressed Style Stars At Last Night's Met Ball

There's a whole slew of fresh couples in town, but that doesn't mean all the star relationships you love to love aren't still going strong, too. At last night's Costume Institute Gala at the Met, arguably the fashion world's biggest party, we spied muses and their designer dates—both old and brand-new—who we always look for on a red carpet.
Dakota Fanning got romantic with Louis Vuitton (we told you at least one Fanning would!), Camilla Belle slinked up to a silver Ralph Lauren, Florence Welch rocked that insane McQueen, and, unlike the grainy paparazzi pics of Us Weekly-staples holding hands, this love fest was fully documented by 1,000 lenses. Without further ado, we're dishing our list—a top 10 to be exact—of the stylish ladies who deserve the best-dressed crown. Breakups might be on the horizon, but right now, the honeymoon phase is in full effect.

Let's kick things off with the best of the best, shall we? This exquisite Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci dress was handcrafted for Beyonce to wear to the Met Gala, and we couldn't have been happier with her high fashion choice. Now this is a post-baby body!

You know the scene in Mad Men when January Jones is in Italy and makes all the boys go nuts? Holy flashback: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley makes no error in wow-ing the dudes, the paps, and her fellow Met Gala attendees in this Burberry dress, sleek up-do, and stunning earrings.

Could Camilla Belle have looked any better? Honestly, this Ralph Lauren dress was perfect for her body and and was one of the night's absolute winners. It's rare that RL makes a red carpet appearance, but when he does...And that lip! Instant icon status.

Christina Ricci made an entrance in Thakoon. Even though she has a super-small frame, she owns this large-and-in-charge dress, a bold choice fit for the Met Gala.

We always die for Diane Kruger, and while we're used to seeing her in more structured ensembles, this cobalt Prada with the feather trim can do no wrong. And neither can Krugs, obvs. How inspired is that unexpected pink minaudiere?

Lily Collins' Valentino look is sweet, sophisticated, and so Snow White, what with her swept-up hair, simple makeup, and clutch (that keeps it from going to nightgown-y!). The Evil Queen is pissed.

Orange may be big for the season but that doesn't make it easier to rock on the red carpet. But, with her simple makeup and super-short cut, Ginnifer Goodwin totally impressed in this Monique Lhullier gown. Also amazing? Her ability to mix-and-match with those eye-catching Brian Atwood pumps.

Talk about old-school glamour with a new-school twist! Karolina Kurkova werked it last night, and while we're not surprised this dress can make her body look like that, we are a little surprised to hear it's Rachel Zoe's design. Sure, the head piece won't win her any favors in Star mag, but c'mon, this is the Met...being ballsy is a good thing.

Tom Ford and Chanel Iman make the perfect pair with this sexy-but-elegant gown. We love the detailed pattern, the exposed seams, and the unusual fabric pairings. That, and the fact Chanel can pull off a turtleneck while still looking so sultry. The hair, makeup, and jewelry finish it off to perfection.

We were hoping someone would wear this McQueen and only someone like Florence Welch could pull it off. Even though it's crazy, it doesn't look that crazy on her, right? #onlyatthemetgala
