The Met Gala is basically the fashion event of the year. Style stars go all-out dramatic, making choosing favorites incredibly difficult. This year, however, the undisputed winner was Bad Girl RiRi in a show-stopping canary yellow cape by Guo Pe. Our runner-up favorites may not have brought the same drama, but were nonetheless enviably on-point.

Maggie Q in Tory Burch This was one of the most underrated looks of the night in our opinion. The split-cut top is not only incredibly chic, but also plays homage to this year's theme - China: Through The Looking Glass. Completing the look with slicked-back hair and minimalist dangle earrings, Maggie is both understated and striking.
Anne Hathaway in Ralph Lauren Our favorite princess (of Genovia) is absolutely stunning in this super-sleek hooded gown. Like Maggie Q, Anne kept her look minimalist...proving that sometimes, less is more.
Lily Aldridge in Carolina Herrera Lily may have not got the memo regarding the theme of the night, but this dress is definitely worth going off-script. Structured, abstract ruffles accent this robin's egg blue buttoned gown. A slick updo and an unexpected deep red lip completes the look.

Sienna Miller in Thakoon Miller's ensembles is another stunner. The matching separates are completely beaded, giving the otherwise structured ensemble a beautiful sense of movement. The best part of this look - the matching tassle accents on her pants and earrings.
Emily Ratajkowski in TopShop The neckline and embroidery of Emily's gown make this gown both eye-catching and on-theme. She also gets extra points for wearing an affordable brand like TopShop to a $20,000 a ticket event. Stars, they're just like us!
Kendell Jenner in Calvin Klein Kendell has skyrocketed to a major influencer in such a short amount of time. For one so young, her fashion instincts are finely honed. While big-sister Kim may have been trying to steal the show in a feathered and sheer confection, we find Kendalls subtle sexiness more appealing. This high necked gown features lace-up sides, and is completely bedazzled.
