Best Dressed Met Gala 2013: The Celebrities That Shined On The Red Carpet (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

The 2013 Met Gala is the Super Bowl of red carpets. Unlike more mainstream events like the Academy Awards, this is a night for fashion's brightest stars to take risks -- and did they ever. To wit: Rooney Mara in a Givenchy stunner that perfectly married the theme ("Punk: From Chaos To Couture") with a sexy, ethereal vibe. Sarah Jessica Parker maintained her status as a style icon in a show-stopping gown and mohawk that managed to take the theme and give it an elegant twist.

Young actresses like Hailee Steinfeld and Emma Watson wore dresses that showed off their youthful sides, while still nodding to the theme of the evening (love the safety pins on Steinfeld's Donna Karan dress).

Check out our picks for the best-dressed celebrities of the evening and then head over to our worst-dressed gallery for a giggle.
