The Met Ball 2009

The Metropolitan Museum of Art's annual Costume Institute Gala is the Oscars of the fashion-world. It is at this time that fashion-savvy celebrities, supermodels and designers come together, dressed in fabulous clothing, to celebrate the launch of the Met's latest exhibit.

This year's theme was the Models as Muse: Embodying Fashion, and was hosted by Marc Jacobs, Justin Timberlake, Kate Moss, and Anna Wintour.

The guests wore their best suits and gowns, and some of them made more daring fashion choices: Kate Moss sported a gold lame turban, Rihanna wore a Dolce & Gabbana suit, and Madonna turned heads in her Louis Vuitton ensemble, bunny ears and everything.

The Gossip Girls, Blake Lively and Leighton Meester didn't do to well on their fashion choices, with Lively's teal Versace dress with its high-cut slit up the side, and Meester's floral Vuitton emsemble. Blair and Serena would be disgusted.

Agyness Deyn resembled Marilyn Monroe with a short blonde bob and a silver Burberry gown, and Heidi Klum's very pregnant physique was extremely noticeable in her J. Mendel dress, even though it was meant to hide the bump.

Here are some of the most memorable looks of the night!
