It’s that time of year again when the world’s most popular artists gather at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art to showcase their lavish gowns and tuxedos for the 2015 Met Gala.

This year’s theme is dedicated to Chinese Fashion in honor of the museum's exhibit “China: Through the Looking Glass.” So we expected some of the ladies to arrive in Asian-inspired gowns for the lavish event, but many decided to go with their own interpretation of the theme.

Some of music’s biggest superstars showed up to the $25,000-a-ticket affair on Monday night (May 5). R&B songbirds Alicia Keys, Solange, Rihanna, Rita Ora, Jennifer Lopez and Janelle Monae looked gorgeous in their lovely gowns. A dapper Kanye West looked svelte in his swede tuxedo while his wife, Kim Kardashian, dazzled in her sparkly, semi-revealing gown with a long feathery train.

Piano man John Legend was debonair in his black tuxedo with his wife Chrissy Teigen matching perfectly in her gown. Miguel decided to rock a blazing red tux paired with slick black shoes. Diddy and his girlfriend, Cassie Ventura, looked cozy together in their digs. Beyonce made a grand entrance in a sheer nude gown that was embellished with multicolored jewels while Jay Z went for a classic black tux.
