Some say it is the fashion event of the year, but what’s surprising is that even the most stylish stars make catastrophic mistakes when it comes to their red carpet looks.

Many A-listers – including Sarah Jessica Parker, Anne Hathaway and Solange Knowles – missed the mark and ended up among the worst dressed at this year’s annual Met Gala, which was held at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday.

Last year’s host, Sarah Jessica – who is typically known for her stylish ensembles – looked as though she may have got slightly carried away by the Chinese-inspired theme, donning an elaborate flame-inspired headdress by Philip Treacy and a one-shouldered black gown with embroidered accents, which she designed in collaboration with H&M.

Below are round up of some of the photos of people who pulled it off and some who made a mess of the event with their fashion sense.
