It's the morning fashion fans look forward to all year long (or at least since Oscar night). Last night stars of fashion and showbiz pulled out all the stops for the annual Costume Institute Ball (aka the MET Gala) at the Metropolitan Museum in New York.

This year's theme was Punk: Chaos to Couture, giving stars and their designer hosts the chance to really pull out the stop when it comes to shape and texture, not to mention all that dark makeup and dramatic hairstyles (or headdresses, in the case of Sarah Jessica Parker). We saw capes, jumpsuits, over-knee boots, and plenty of dark, lacy black with gothic touches. It seems that in the fashion world 'punk' and 'goth' are oddly interchangeable.

We'll be bringing you galleries of the looks all morning, but let's kick off with some of the big name attendees, including Beyonce in dramatic Givenchy (check out those boots), Anne Hathaway, who chose tonight to premiere a new hair colour, and Katy Perry, who snuggled up to Dolce & Gabbana in one of their Sicilian-inspired cocktail dresses, blinged up for the occasion with plenty of silver! Plus Taylor Swift, Kristen Stewart and Amanda Seyfried, to name but a few...
