Last night, the stars were out for 2017's Met Ball Gala, often referred to as "fashion's biggest night out." This year's annual fund-raising benefit for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City was meant to honor Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo with an exhibition entitled "Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between." And in a nod to the exhibition and theme of the night, celebrities stepped out in Kawakubo- and "in-between"-inspired styles.

Per usual, the looks of the night ranged from wildly creative to straight-up glamorous. Here, 17 stars who pulled off some of the most memorable styles of the anticipated evening.

  • Serena Williams

    Stop. The. Presses. RiRi's daring look by Comme des Garcons, which was an on-point tribute to designer Rei Kawakubo, may have been the biggest talker of the night. Apparently, it wasn't as hard as it looks to put on, but her shoes took an hour to get into.
