• Lupita Nyong’o: To complete her flapper-inspired custom Prada gown, PEOPLE’s Most Beautiful Woman wore an emerald-green vintage Cartier necklace as a headpiece, along with lots more vintage Cartier jewels. These out-there jewels (plus the dress itself) are the reasons why the star nabbed our risk-taker award.
• Beyoncé: The singer can pull off pretty much anything. And by anything, in this case we specifically mean a netted Givenchy veil to match her sheer heavily-embellished Givenchy couture gown. She almost reminds us of a goth bride.
• Sarah Jessica Parker: The Met co-chair pulled out all the stops in a custom Oscar de la Renta design (which featured the designer’s name in red embroidery on the train), and she also went big in the hair department, sporting a truly insane updo with fresh gardenias tucked into it. As for jewels, 19th Century Fred Leighton diamond drop earrings (four carats each!) added to the glam factor.
• Olivia Munn: “It’s my own version of the Hunger Games,” the actress told PEOPLE of the ’40s Fred Leighton diamond and gold wing brooch that her stylist Micaela Erlanger fashioned into a hairpiece. As for her dress (a collaboration between Erlanger and designer Diane von Furstenberg), Munn shared: “I feel so comfortable. It’s so nice, and it’s so comfortable.”
• Kate Upton: The only thing that can distract us from her the swimsuit model’s décolletage in her black Dolce & Gabbana gown, is that flowered hairpiece/wreath/thing lying atop her back her blonde waves. ‘Nuff said.
