The 2011 Costume Institute Gala

Stars, models and designers were out in full force last night at the annual Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala in NYC in honor of the exhibit Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty.

So many dresses and so little time! There was a ton of gold, sparkle, color, and of course McQueen frocks. Enjoy some of my favorites!

Those who rocked McQueen and Givenchy (for whom McQueen designed for):
