A who’s who of the fashion world gathered for a glamourous night at the Met.

The Met Gala celebrated its new costume exhibition, “Sleeping Beauties: ReAwakening Fashion,” Monday night. From movie stars to supermodels and famous singers, everyone was dressed to the nines. Here are some glam highlights.

LaLa Anthony: “Wow, look at the dress, look at the details.”

Talk about an entrance! Fashion reigned supreme Monday night, and Cardi B definitely got the memo.

The annual Met Gala in New York City took center stage, and so did first-time Co-Chair Zendaya, stealing the show in John Galliano. A quick change into another Galliano gown from his Givenchy era made Zendaya the belle of the ball.

Ariana Grande was there, too, floating down the carpet like a porcelain angel.

Ariana Grande: “This is actual mother of pearl made by Loewe. Johnathan Anderson’s vision of this was to have me in mother of pearl, which coincidentally is my birthstone.”

Nicki Minaj channeled the night’s theme; “Garden of Time,” in a vibrant fit and flare 3D flower mini dress.

Shakira wore a sprawling sculpted rose cape gown by Carolina Herrera.

Anna Wintour: “I’m just so thankful for the army of people who put this together. We start planning it over a year in advance.”

This year, the museum’s costume exhibition was dubbed “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion.”

Sarah Jessica Parker: “I get to come with my dear friend, this is our seventh?”

Andy Cohen: “Seventh, I think.”

Sarah Jessica Parker: “Yes, this is our seventh, our seventh.”

Andy Cohen: “She takes my breath away every time, I think, being on her arm and helping her up the stairs.”

Speaking to Vogue, Gala Co-Chair Jennifer Lopez, who’s attended the Gala 14 times, says it’s always a magical night.

Jennifer Lopez: “It’s lovely, it’s a beautiful night. So many people, so many artists come together from different genres — from music, from film, fashion.”

Supermodel Gigi Hadid wore a white off-the-shoulder corset dress by Thom Browne. It took over 70 people and thousands of hours to make it by hand.

Singer Rita Ora and director Taika Waititi sizzled as a newly married couple on the carpet.

Rita Ora: “So we are wearing Marni this evening and Francesa, who is one of my dearest friends, we really wanted to take fashion for me with the theme and a timeless beauty, so all of these beads really age back to the First and Second century B.C..”

Mindy Kaling was stunning in a dress called “The Melting Flower of Time,” definitely my favorite.

And singer Lana Del Rey branched out in Alexander McQueen. Her hand-embroidered dress featured thorny vines, climbing from her skirt to behind her head.

The Met Gala raises money for the museum’s costume institute. The exhibition officially opens to the public Friday.
