Now it's time to find some icons of style for 2012: We bring you the pictures and you decide who was 'a hit' and who was 'a miss' of this year's Met Gala evening.

Queen B was a showstopper in a sheer black-purple Givenchy gown, while Leighton Meester, a girl famous for her role in a teenage hit "Gossip Girl", stunned every present person in a beautiful gold Marchesa dress. She completed the look with some Harry Winston jewelry and just a touch of suntan.
Our favorites were also Hilary Swank & Jessica Alba, both in Michael Kors, Sofia Vergara in a dress by Marchesa, Camilla Belle in Ralph Lauren and Ashley Greene who opted for a white gown designed by Donna Karan.

Sequins trend shows no sign of abating which was proven by some of the most influential women in show business: Cameron Diaz, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Gisele Bundchen, Nina Dobrev and many more dazzled on the red carpet in sequin covered gowns.

Rihanna was one of the best dressed celebs this evening according to fashion experts. She stayed true to her style and chose a black leather dress by Tom Ford. Rooney Mara was no surprise in a black lace dress opposed to her porcelain complexion. It seems like Sarah Jessica Parker looked up to her alter ego Carrie Bradshaw and picked an unusual floral gown which she matched with floral pointed heels.

Young Dakota Fanning is definitely growing up into a fashionista. She opted for a pastel Louis Vuitton gown and looked better than many celebrities on Met Gala eve. Singer M.I.A.wore a floral Stella McCartney with not so appropriate high heels.
