The Met Gala is tonight. Black Twitter is live-tweeting their favorite celebrity looks and ranking outfits from best to worst. This year’s theme is a follow-up to last fall’s gala event titled In America: An Anthology of Fashion, a celebration of American style and its unsung designers. The dress code of the evening was white tie gilded glamour with an emphasis on New York flair. Our gal Regina King is one of the notable co-hosts of this season’s swanky affair. And La La Anthony, wearing a custom LaQuan Smith gown, covered the red carpet and chatted with guests as they gave homage to the late, great André Leon Talley.

Below, we’ve rounded up a multitude of stunning outfits that caught our eye on the red carpet. Which one is your favorite? Let us know.
