So long Anna Wintour, hello Rihanna! The party didn't end at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala in NYC on Monday, May 5. Some of the biggest A-listers in Hollywood—including Bradley Cooper, Lupita Nyong'o, and Zooey Deschanel—made their way to Rihanna's star-studded bash at the Up & Down nightclub in the West Village to dance, grab a drink, and escape from the flashing camera lights. (The "official" after party was at the Boom Boom Room at the Standard, however, many opted to party longer at Rihanna's bash.)

The "Diamonds" singer, 26, slipped out of her red carpet Stella McCartney crop top and full-length skirt into a sexy gold ensemble for her night of festivities. Greeting her guests (with a little side boob and bum exposure) Rihanna stayed near the DJ booth for most of the night, until eventually heading downstairs to the photo booth. 

An array of celebrities kicked their heels off at the NYC hotspot, which revealed some odd couplings and surprising pals. Dianna Agron, for instance, arrived ready to hit the dance floor with Gabrielle Union, Nyong'o, and American Horror Story's Sarah Paulson. Bravo's Watch What Happens Live! host Andy Cohen came piling in soon after with friends Nicole Richie, Kate Bosworth, Alexa Chung and Dakota Johnson.

Someone not checked off on the guest list? Rihanna's beau Drake. Although the rapper wasn't present, a source tells Us all is well with the couple.

"It's working well," a source told Us last month. "Drake is really different from what she's used to. He's so different from the guys she usually likes." The source added: "They really are good together."
