Brace yourself, because you’re about to set your eyes on some of the most beautiful -- and outrageous -- outfits worn by Hollywood stars. Monday is not only Star Wars Day, but also the date of the 2015 Met Gala in New York. Hollywood’s finest flew in to the Big Apple to attend the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute exhibit. The theme for this year's Met Ball is “China: Through the Looking Glass.”

The red carpet kicked off at 6 p.m. EDT with stars like Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Dakota Johnson, Rita Ora, Benedict Cumberbatch and many more. Check out photos of the red carpet from the $25,000-a-ticket Met Gala event:
