    Kanye West and girlfriend Kim Kardashian (in floral Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci) hit the red carpet arm in arm. Kardashian had clearly been trained for the festivities, as she sounded particularly excited and articulate when she explained her look. "You know, I've never really gone through a punk phase," she said. No real surprise there.

    NEW YORK, NY - MAY 06: Actress Allison Williams attends the Costume Institute Gala for the 'PUNK: Chaos to Couture' exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2013 in New York City.

The biggest night in fashion is officially underway in New York City. The annual Costume Institute Benefit (a.k.a. the Metropolitan Museum of Art Gala) red carpet was packed with stars like Kim Kardashian (in Givenchy by gala co-chair Riccardo Tisci) and boyfriend Kanye West, co-host Rooney Mara (also in Givenchy), and, of course, honorary chair Beyoncé—who wore, you guessed it, Givenchy.

Since the theme of the night is punk—the gala serves as the official kickoff to the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s exhibit “Punk: From Chaos to Couture“—we expected a pretty jaw-dropping red carpet, but the night’s fashion left a bit to be desired. That’s not to say there weren’t any bright moments. Miley Cyrus killed it in a glittering fishnet body-contouring gown by Marc Jacobs, complete with spiky platinum blonde hair, Sarah Jessica Parker wore a very Carrie Bradshaw-esque Philip Treacy headdress that recalled the iconic punk mohawk, and Ashley Olsen radiated in orange vintage Dior Couture.

Click through the gallery above to see all the looks from the night’s red carpet! And tell us in your unfiltered comments below: whose outfit do you love? Whose do you, well, not love?
