Last night (Monday, May 7th) New York City was ablaze with A-list celebrities as they put on their most glamourous looks and strutted alongside their designer dates for the 2012 MET Ball.

MSDTV full fashion recap after the break. 

The night of fashion and fun was held at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, where Anna Wintour & VOGUE’s put on a night full of glamour and beauty.

Although we are on the fence if Beyonce took the top spot for best dressed last night, we will admit that she looked beautiful in her hugging floral embroidered sheer black gown which shifted into a bright purple feathered train.

Rapper Azealia Banks was so star struck when she met Beyonce she tweeted:

Banks also did a good job of cleaning up as she dawned a custom dress by designer Alexander Wang.

On the note of cleaning up, Rihanna did a pretty solid 180 as she wore a floor length crocodile Tom Ford gown with a back slit and deep back V which showed off her slim and toned frame.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that her hair received the same attention and her luxurious dress.

Paula Patton arrived in a pale pink strapless organza style Vera Wang gown. Not surprisingly, she looked amazing.

Carmelo looked gentlemanly in a custom Rag And Bone tux, while his wife LaLa Anthony rocked an electric blue floor length gown by Zac Posen.

Rashida Jones stepped out in a floral Tory Burch dress that looked summer chic.

Solange arrived as the date of good friend and designer Rachel Roy, and is of course wearing the designer. The eye popping canary yellow dress was accompanied by a dazzling box clutch.

Bruno Mars stunted in head to toe Prada. While Rick Ross enjoyed the open bar inside and tweeted a pic from the gala alongside celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson sipping on wine.

Recording artist M.I.A. looked a little out of place in her outfit by Stella McCartney.

Model Liya Kebede, Tory Burch (designer), Rashida Jones and Brooklyn Decker all posed for red carpet picture as they rocked Ms. Burch’s designs.

Chanel Iman arrived with designer Tom Ford and wore one of his glamorous gowns.

Giants baller Victor Cruz also got suited up for the party with his long time girlfriend in all white. And despite having an injured hand, Amar’e Stoudemire attended the gala with his on and off girlfriend & baby’s mother.

Knicks Defensive Player of The Year, Tyson Chandler, made an appearance on the carpet with his wife Kimberly. He rocked a custom Tom Ford look, while Kimberly rocked a red strapless Valentino jumpsuit, handpicked by VOGUE’s Anna Wintour.

A few of the other surprises included Janelle Monae – who came in a dazzling jumper – minus the uniform and Kanye – who wore a fitted suit – minus the Kardashian. Too bad he couldn’t bear to offer a smile.
