Celebrities show off their most extreme looks at fashion's Oscars
The Oscars of the Fashion World saw an array of superstar guests parading their boldest and most bizarre outfits
The most exclusive event in the fashion calendar has finally arrived.
Some of the biggest names in showbiz sashayed down the red carpet at this year's Met Gala, formally known as the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit.
Vogue editor-in-chief honcho Anna Wintour was one of the first to arrive at the glamorous annual event.
Dressed in a gold and glittering Chanel ensemble with feathers running around the skirt, the gala chair dazzled as she posed for pictures.
While Gisele Bundchen and husband Tom Brady made the picture perfect couple as they shared a kiss in front of the cameras.

The supermodel, 36, looked nothing short of stunning in a slinky backless silver Stella McCartney gown, while her handsome other half colour coordinated in a dark grey tuxedo.
But it was Katy Perry who made sure she had all eyes firmly fixed her way. The Roar singer opted for a bold and outright bizarre bright red Galliano frock. READ ALSO; The Real Reason Kanye West Won't Be Attending Gala Met...
As predicted, Twitter went crazy over her unusual look with some loving the unique outfit and others not entirely sure.
"Miss Katy Perry just won the MetGala," wrote one fan.
"MetGala what does katy perry look like? I mean come on...i do like her but what was she thinking...." said another. "This is art," added a third.

"Katy Perry is giving off some serious Lady Darth Maul vibes... MetGala," joked a fourth.
After Katy Perry set the tone in her VERY extravagant ensemble, Nicki Minaj rocked the red carpet in an equally striking ensemble.
The singer was channelling serious superhero vibes in her custom-made H&M gown, which featured a fitted bodysuit and stunning train in eye-catching red and black.
The 34-year-old kept the rest of her look simple, with sleek locks and a perfect red pout.
Meanwhile, Kendall Jenner proved exactly why she’s one of the most sought after models in the world in a daring La Perla design.
Not many people could pull off the sexy, sheer chainmail look, but the reality TV star nailed it.
The model left little to the imagination as she flashed her bare rear to cameras as she posed on the red carpet from all angles.
The barely-there dress, which she teamed with a pair of black Louboutin heels, featured a slashed middle which revealed her enviably toned tummy and a hint of cleavage, while the skirt featured a huge slit down one side.
Jaden Smith turned up to the annual fashion extravaganza carrying his chopped off dreadlocks in one hand.
If that wasn't bold enough, Will and Jada's offspring was also sporting a grill.
The 18-year-old has has never been one to air on the side of caution when it comes to fashion, but the rest of his look was actually quite laid back.
Kylie Jenner also pulled out all the stops in a striking see-through Versace dress.
Kylie, 19, looked sensational in the nude, embroidered Versace gown which she paired with simple nude heels and a new sleek, platinum bob.
The teenager walked the red carpet with designer Donatella Versace, whose gold one-shoulder down and eye-popping neon yellow hair also turned heads.
But Kim herself decided to play it safe at this year’s A-List bash.
Rather than flashing her flesh in scantily-clad designs or going all out in an ornate ensemble like last year, the reality queen went for a very understated outfit.
Kim, who flew solo while Kanye West remained in Los Angeles to look after their kids, looked fresh and angelic in the off the shoulder white dress.READ ALSO; Bella Hadid Goes Braless For MET Gala After Party
She was sporting a super sleek bob, kept her make-up minimal and went accessory-free.
Commenting on the look on Twitter, some branded it "boring", with one writing: "@KimKardashian should be banned for life from the #MetGala for this boring outfit."
Every year there’s a different theme. Previous years’ themes have included Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age of Technology and China: Through The Looking Glass.
This year's theme is centred around Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo, founder of Comme des Garçons and it's only the second time that the focus has been on a living designer - after 1983's Yves Saint Laurent event.
