The stars came out in a cavalcade of glitzy fashion for the Met Gala on Monday night.

The event, a benefit that marked the opening of the Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art of the In-Between exhibit at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, brought out some of the world’s most famous names in some truly stunning looks.

Rihanna was a highlight of the night in a Kawakubo-inspired dress that looked to have been made of flower petals.

And so was Canadian chanteuse Celine Dion, her hair standing atop her head like an elegant black ribbon.

Here are some of the most standout looks from the 2017 Met Gala:
