Last evening celebrities and notable names in the fashion industry gathered to celebrate the “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations” Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.While it’s a chance to honour high-end designers, some attendees take it a bit too far and choose over-the-top dresses and suits to make a statement on the red carpet.

Model Angela Lindvall's black and white outfit hardly looks like it's appropriate for a formal gathering.

Musician Florence Welch went for a Little Bo Peep look.

We wonder if Chloe Sevigny knows she is not actually wearing a dress.

Model and actress Milla Jovovich chose a flapper-inspired dress.

Model-turned-actress Karolina Kurkova channels the late Elizabeth Taylor in this frock.

´╗┐´╗┐Cameron Silver (R) chose a bright, colourful suit for the gala. He's posing with designer Nicole Miller.

Linda Fargo, the Senior Vice President of Bergdorf Goodman, sports a wild cape.

Dutch model Marpessa Hennink looks as if she is in mourning, wearing a black veil.

Giovanna Battaglia, the editor of L'Uomo Vogue, chose a floral gown.

Looks as if Victoria Justice and Battaglia went shopping together.

Italian model and socialite Bianca Brandolini D'Adda channeled her inner Cleopatra.

Lori Goldstein and Lisa Robertson's outfits seriously clashed on the red carpet.

And last, but not least: Beyonce showed off her post-baby body. Not bad!

Can't get enough high-end fashion?
