If we’re gonna shine the spotlight on the sexy and beautiful, we might as well also show a little love to those women who either tried a little too hard, completely misunderstood the theme or simply didn’t bring their red carpet A-game.

MET Gala 2014: Adriana Lima’s First Big Event Following Her Split With Marko Jaric

And, as expected, Adriana Lima kept things simple, but was easily one of the most beautiful women to walk the red carpet last night. While last year’s theme was punk-craziness, this year was more focused on glamour and high-fashion featuring flowing gowns. Some women played along with the theme and others decided to keep things on the simple side. Adri was one of those in the latter group, but then again, Adriana doesn’t need to do too much to attract the camera’s attention.

We should note that this year’s Costume Institute exhibit, which opens to the public on Thursday was officially titled “Charles James: Beyond Fashion.” The exhibit’s namesake designer, who died in 1978, was a mid-20th century designer specializing in ultra-glam, sculptured gowns made with intricate draping techniques (see Voguepedia for an example). It’s the inaugural exhibit of the sparkling new, $40 million Anna Wintour Costume Center, which is, of course, named after the famous Vogue editor.

Along with the Met gala pics, we’re also including Adriana Lima’s showing at the Desigual 2014 Fashion Show late last month in Madrid that we forgot to jump on earlier. These photos will officially kick off our Adriana Lima’s Single Again Week, which we will celebrate through next Tuesday (May 13).

If we had to go purely on sex appeal, we’d have to run with Lea Michele, but the fact that Dianna Agron stands out so well even though she’s wearing a seemingly boring dress, it goes to prove that with the right stylist, the sky is the limit with Dianna.

We should note that this year’s Costume Institute exhibit, which opens to the public on Thursday was officially titled “Charles James: Beyond Fashion.” The exhibit’s namesake designer, who died in 1978, was a mid-20th century designer specializing in ultra-glam, sculptured gowns made with intricate draping techniques (see Voguepedia for an example).

MET Gala 2014: Selena Gomez Keeps It Simple in DVF

Selena Gomez - Met Gala 2014 ADDS 4-1290187

When you’re young, rich & famous, you’re somewhat expected to take risks and live a little on the wild side, but I think it’s safe to say that “risk” was pretty much the last thing on Selena Gomez‘s mind last night on the red carpet at the Costume Institute Gala.

I guess Selena wants to save all the risk-taking for her concert performances and simply wanted to enjoy the night’s big exhibit that paid tribute to the late designer Charles James. The exhibit’s namesake designer, who died in 1978, was a mid-20th century designer specializing in ultra-glam, sculptured gowns made with intricate draping techniques (see Voguepedia for an example).

MET Gala 2014: Rita Ora Gets Leggy in Donna Karan Atelier

Beyond Fashion Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

We love Rita Ora & once again she didn’t disappoint. As we’ve learned, Rita’s a very loyal spokesmodel for both Adidas & Donna Karan since she’s always spotted out & about rocking the latest styles from both brands.

It was only natural for the young singer to wear a beautiful dress designed by Donna Karan last night on the red carpet at the annual Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. The outfit came complete with a convenient slit through which Rita could showcase her freaky-sexy shoes & legs.

MET Gala 2014: Taylor Swift Missed A Fashionable Opportunity

Beyond Fashion Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

I’ll be honest, Taylor Swift didn’t exactly excite us last night, but since we’ve been religiously covering her relentless camera-whoring in NYC, I figured we’d throw these up for all you Taylor fans & haters.

For a second, I thought Taylor was creeping into ‘risk taker’ territory with her fashionable outings, but judging by her outfit last night, that’s not the case. From all the expensive outfits, Taylor chose this one?! I feel like the outfit was too light for Taylor and did absolutely nothing for her from the standpoint of making her standout in the crowd.
