Big risks = big reward.

Everyone thinks that the Oscars are the biggest night in fashion, but in reality, it's the Met Gala

The annual ball, which formally kicks off the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s yearly Costume Institute exhibit, draws just about every Hollywood heavy-hitter -- not to mention stars at their boldest. (Please see Nicole Richie's grey hair in 2013, Lupita Nyong’o's feathered number of 2014 and Rihanna's massive gown of 2015).

This year, the theme, "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology," made room for some... interesting choices. Taylor Swift arrived in what can only be described as a spacesuit, Alicia Vikander donned a robot-esque Louis Vuitton dress and Julie Macklowe appeared in a mirrored jumpsuit (perhaps R2-D2 inspired?). Others went a more classic route *cough, cough* Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and, as always, Anna Wintour looked like her regal self in Chanel.
