There's no doubt about it - this is the best red carpet of the year. The $NZ17,000 a ticket annual Met Ball in New York is fashion's most extravagant night, and it sees all sorts of celebrities - from pop stars to models to movie stars - playing dress up based on a theme.

This year's 'dress code' is 'Charles James: Beyond Fashion' - James was a British-born fashion designer who worked from the 1930s through to 1958 (but his career peaked in 1947). He's widely known as 'America's First Couturier', and his gowns were structured, extravagant, full-skirted, beautifully draped and often jewel coloured.

Aka, we can expect some seriously full-on dresses on today's red carpet. Catch the stars as they arrive in our live best & worst dressed gallery...
