The Metropolitan Costume Institute Gala is known for its impressive celebrity guest list and Monday night's bash, which celebrated Miuccia Prada and Elsa Schiaparelli, was the most star-studded one yet.

And while the red carpet was a sea of stunning designer gowns, a few A-listers stood out in truly memorable looks.


Jessica Alba wore the night's most popular -- and flashiest hue -- stepping out in a gold Michael Kors gown.

Scarlett Johansson went all out in a strapless Dolce & Gabbana gown with a tulle mermaid skirt and embroidered bodice.
