If I could bag a ticket to any red carpet event, it would have to be the Met Gala. Not only is it held in New York City, but it's an unashamed celebration of dressing up- the arena where couture pieces come to life and the glamour stakes are raised year after year. This year's Costume Institute Gala heralded the launch of the Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which focuses on the parallels between both designers and their creative processes. As you'd expect, there was a lot of Prada on the red carpet, and a whole host of looks inspired by the 20s glamour which Schiaparelli captured in her designs. Here's a look at my favourites:

Lily Collins in a beautiful, ethereal Valentino gown.

Amy Adams, evoking classic Hollywood chic in Giambattista Valli.

Mia Wasikowska in intricately embellished Prada.

Jessica Stam looking amazing in Dior Haute Couture.

Emma Stone in Lanvin, accompanied by Alber Elbaz. 

Jessica Alba, in glistening Michael Kors, with Hilary Swank.
 
Sarah Burton, flanked by Florence Welch and Cate Blanchett in stunning McQueen creations.

Who were your favourites from the Met Gala red carpet?
