Sarah Jessica Parker / Oscar de la Renta The 2014 Met Gala is one of my favorite events of the year. Of course, if I'd be invited it would be my very favorite event, ever. So for now, red carpet photos will have to suffice. This year's theme was a tribute to legendary, American couturier Charles James. His tastes went 'beyond fashion.' Guests were encouraged to experiment with major color and decoration. Few really got it, some took it too literal. Either way, it's one of the most glamorous nights of the year.

Take a look:

Rihanna / Stella McCartney

Flawless!

Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka / Thom Browne

I am so torn and confused and upset. [You know] I LOVE all things Thom Browne BUT you never wear him runway style AND Neil, you're too OLD to pull this look off. Do you realize that your boyfriend looks like a harlequin?

Sarah Silverman / Zac Posen
