After weeks of waiting in anticipation, the Costume Institute Benefit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art has gone off with a bang. Sticking to the this year's theme, Punk: Chaos to Couture, models, actresses, and fashion fixtures are filled the red carpet in punk-inspired ensembles from the likes of Balenciaga, Maison Martin Margiela, Christian Dior, Christopher Kane, and Donna Karan. For a complete look at all the Met Gala glamour, just keep clicking to see who wore what.
There's no denying it: the Met Gala red carpet debuted some of the sexiest dresses we've seen this year. We're talking thigh-high slits, sheer insets, lacy finishes, plunging necklines, and even some corsets and harnesses (the theme of this year's bash was punk, after all). From Constance Jablonski's hand-crafted golden Wes Gordon gown to a serious display of skin from Miranda Kerr in Michael Kors and Anja Rubik's moto-inspired red leather Anthony Vaccarello mini, our favourite starlets and models weren't afraid to show just how sexy this year's theme could be. What's the point of punk if you can't push the envelope a little, anyway?

What are freckles? Clinically speaking, a freckle is an unusually heavy deposit of melanin at one spot in the skin. 'Freckling' is an uneven distribution of melanin pigment across the skin surface. These wee brown spots develop as a result of a combination of genetics and sun exposure. For some, they're born with 'em. For others, freckles appear over time in response to sun sensitivity. Pesky or cute? Well, with our sun-smart face on, we're gonna go with cute. In fact, lots of stars are peppered with these sweet spots, and we've got photos to prove that freckles have a certain kind of natural appeal. What do you think?
