Benny Cumberbatch at 2014 Met Ball!!!

Tonight is the 2014 Met Gala, also known as the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala, in celebration of designer Charles James.

Best Dressed Man: Benedict Cumberbatch in Ralph Lauren

Best Dressed Woman: Hailee Steinfeld in Prabal Gurung

Honorable Mention: Liu Wen

Liu Wen looked gorgeous too in Zac Posen, but her dess was too on-the-nose (as was Posen's dress for Dita Von Teese) in terms of cribbing either the dress design or specific details directly from a Charles James gown. (see also Katie Couric). The Prabal Gurung above was clearly inspired by James but still is fresh, modern, and most importantly, includes pockets!

Also well done:

Anna Kendrick in J. Mendel

Sarah Silverman in Zac Posen

Anne Hathaway in Calvin Klein

However, what were these women thinking?

Katie Holmes in Marchesa
Kate Upton in Dolce Gabbana
Naomi Watts in Givenchy Couture
Lily Allen in Chanel Haute Couture
