In addition to the supermodel main attractions, there was no shortage of A-listers at last night's Costume Institute Gala, celebrating the opening of the “The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion” exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. From Rihanna and Molly Sims’ avant garde ensembles, to Rachel Bilson and Ashley Olsen's simple, monochromatic chic, the looks ranged from fabulous to amusing to downright weird.

Check out the picks below to see which style stars shone the brightest in our favorite trends from the evening.

1. The Metallic Mini Dress: Many attendees opted to go short over classic floor-length, and did so in shimmering hues. Bar Refaeli, Anne Hathaway, Giselle Bundchen, and Kate Moss (the evening’s hostess), all went for hiked up, shiny looks that brought a little fun to the carpet.  Attempt to rival Ms. Refaeli’s adorable Marchesa with this strapless number from Foley and Corinna ($400).

2. The Power Slit: In the vein of classic Hollywood glamour, some attendees wore gowns featuring dramatic thigh-high slits.  Cindy Crawford and Liv Tyler chose dresses that highlighted their lean legs with a daring slits that revealed just the right amount of skin. With this slightly more demure navy satin halter dress with side slit from A.B.S. ($186), you can show some skin without leaving as little to the imagination.

3. Vampy Lace: Stella McCartney dressed Kate Bosworth in sultry black with lace detailing, and then opted for a black lace pantsuit herself. If the pants are too much, try this more conservative belted lace sheath dress ($150) for your next formal affair.
