Guests were told to arrive in their best interpretations of "Gilded Glamour" and "white tie" — themes that would mesh nicely with the Costume Institute's newest exhibit, In America: An Anthology of Fashion. Thankfully, the night's best looks didn't disappoint, and bustled gowns, tiaras, and corsets were aplenty. However, no Met Gala would be complete without one red carpet mainstay: Sheer dresses.
