It takes a lot to stand out in a crowd like the one that gathered Monday night in New York for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's lavish Costume Institute Gala.
But if the competition was fierce, so too were many of the looks – from the dresses to the accoutrements to (of course) the hair.
If you missed any of the festivities, see below for our recap of five highlights from one of the most fashionable nights on the calendar.

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama appeared at a fundraising event in New York City Thursday – but they certainly weren't the only VIPs in the room.
Sarah Jessica Parker hosted the event at her Manhattan home, and among the celebrities in attendance were Meryl Streep, Michael Kors, Anna Wintour and Bravo's Andy Cohen, who was seated across from the First Lady.
President Obama noted that Parker's husband, Matthew Broderick, was unable to attend because he's currently starring in Nice Work If You Can Get It on Broadway, and added that the couple had "been great friends." He also added that Wintour, too, was "working hard in New York and Chicago" on behalf of his re-election efforts.
Parker, a longtime Obama supporter, introduced the President with a hug and a kiss, and called Michelle Obama "radiant and extraordinary."

Anyone questioning the power of Vogue need look no further than what happened when the publication's high priestess of fashion, Anna Wintour, met in 1998 with the high priestess of television, Oprah Winfrey.
Questioned by Morley Safer during a 60 Minutes interview, Wintour, 59, was asked if the stories were true that she demanded Winfrey lose 20 pounds before she would appear in Vogue.
"It was a very gentle suggestion," replied Wintour, 59, according to an outtake from her sit-down with Safer that ran Sunday.
