The stars are shining bright tonight.

Celebs have started making their way to the red carpet at tonight’s 2016 Met Gala black-tie event in New York, which has been hailed Hollywood’s party of the year.

Held to raise money for the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute, with tickets fetching $30,000 a pop, it attracted over 600 celebrity attendees last year.

And if last year’s Met Ball OTT outfits – including a fluffy yellow gown worn by RiRi which spawned countless internet memes – are anything to go by, this year’s all-star extravaganza is set to get jaws dropping. Here’s what the first few stars to hit the red carpet are wearing…

Anna Wintour made an entrance like only Anna Wintour can.
