NEW YORK -- Featuring a red carpet dominated by a flurry of silver, lustrous and futuristic looks, the fashion elite gathered Monday evening for the Met Museum's annual black-tie extravaganza.
This year, the Costume Institute ball was centered around the idea of "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology," exploring the relationship between clothes created by hand (or "manus") versus the machine.
As expected with a technology-tied theme, metallic accents paired with sleek, slick-backed hairstyles featured prominently on the night.
Models Alessandra Ambrosio and Cindy Crawford, and the Kardashians' youngest Kylie Jenner opted for sterling-hued looks.
Singer Rita Ora donned a metallic grey, feathered Hunger Games-like get up while actress Kate Hudson's white dress was more of a sculptural and deconstructed take.
Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology at the Metropolitan Museum of Art opens May 5 and runs through August 14.
