The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala is one of the fashion highlights of the year, dubbed the Sartorial Parade of who’s who in the most elite of social circles. This year the institute celebrates British designer Charles James, known for his refined taste and elegance, and Ms. Anna Wintour editor of Vogue. Anna Wintour receives a special gift of having the Costume Institute re-named in her honor as the Anna Wintour Costume Center.

Although there are lot of other details to discuss, like First Lady Michelle Obama cutting the ribbon at the newly named Anna Wintour Costume Center, most of you really only care about the red carpet fashions and who’s wearing what. Beyonce, Jay-Z, Erykah Badu, and Naomi Campbell all hit up the red carpet wearing Givenchy.

Lupita Nyong’o however steals the night with this beautiful Prada number that looks like it was designed specifically with Lupita in mind.
