The red carpet: where celebrities (and their stylists) show their best stuff. For the Met Gala, the ante is upped considerably — this is where the fashion industry watches with a meticulous eye, where style stars are exalted, and where fashion fails are hard to forget. With Monday evening’s Met Gala theme of China: Through the Looking Glass, there were a certain few who really hit it out of the park, from Rihanna (in custom Guo Pei, a Chinese couturier whose gilded piece welcomes visitors to the exhibit), to a glittering Fan Bing Bing, to Lady Gaga, an empress in Balenciaga. Beyoncé showed off a Givenchy we’ll not soon forget, and Kim Kardashian‘s look reminded us too much of a Beyoncé look (and a Cher look) we’d already seen. So without further ado, here is the Met Gala Best Dressed.

Rihanna, incredible in Guo Pei
