The annual Costume Institute Gala, also known as the Met Ball, was held earlier tonight at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Hosted by Vogue, the Oscars of the fashion industry brought together a flock of celebrities, models and designers who were all dressed up to the nines.

The gala was hosted by Elettra Wiedemann, model and daughter of Isabella Rossellini. The theme of the event was "Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations" to celebrate the influence of Elsa Schiaparelli on Miuccia Prada.

As usual, the Met Gala offered a myriad of strikingly beautiful dresses.

Here are a few of my favorite trend-setting gowns:
