The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Gala is often called the Oscars red carpet of the East Coast, and there's a reason why—the fashion is outstanding! Designers and celebrities flocked to the Upper East Side museum last night in their best clothes to celebrate the opening of its latest style exhibit, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, in honor of the designer who passed away last February. Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce Knowles, Kate Hudson, and more were among the star-studded guest list. Click "See the Photos" for red carpet pics and fashion credits from the Met Gala 2011! The exhibit will be open to the public May 4th through July 31st.
