Last Monday, one of the most awaited fashion events of the year took place at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Costume Institute Gala 2009, named as “The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion”, was hosted by Kate Moss and Marc Jacobs.

Celebrities, models and fashion designers graced the red carpet of the event wearing their best model-looking dresses. I am not surprised to see fashion perfect gowns as well as weird-looking outfits. In every occasion, one can be either fashionable or out-fashioned. Personally every time I stumbled upon blog posts regarding fashion events, I would go directly to the Best-Dressed and the Worst-Dressed links of the site. For this blog, I would classify them as Amazing and Amusing looks.

Check out the gallery I have prepared for you. I would like to thank the fashion sites who uploaded these photos. Even though we did not attend the party in person, at least we can be amazed and amused with the wild creations and daring outfits of the party’s attendees.
