Celebrities put some effort into their wardrobes for the 2014 Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

The theme for the Met Ball was white tie, inspired by British fashion designer Charles James known as “America’s First Couturier.” Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Beyonce, Jay Z, Rihanna, Gabrielle Union, Rita Ora, Frank Ocean and more walked the red carpet for the event.

The red carpet was streamed live and Ocean was among the performers. Check out a few photos from the event.
