PHOTOS: 2013 Met Gala

The steps of the Met have been graced again with the trains of some beautiful gowns. The Metropolitan Museum of Art's annual Costume Institute gala took place on Monday night, bringing together some of the most fashion-forward women around. Among them were pop stars Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus, who decided to draw inspiration from the night's theme "Punk: Chaos to Couture."

Miley was dressed in a long-sleeved Marc Jacobs gown made of black fish net, her hair styled in spikes and her lips bright red.

The Queen of Pop Madonna was also on hand, hitting the red carpet in a daring spiked blazer and thigh-high tights.

Beyonce, who was an honorary chair for the event this year, took a break from her "Mrs. Carter Show" in Europe to attend. She wore a glamorous black strapless Givenchy, emblazoned with a golden border and paired with matching boots.

Taylor Swift brought out her inner fashionista, looking all grown up in a black J. Mendel sculpted gown, according to "The Huffington Post." 

Kylie Minogue showed up in a black-and-white contrast strapless dress from Moschino, while Bey's little sister Solange showed off her 'fro in a black-and-blue printed number. Even Korean rap sensation Psy made an appearance, wearing a red checkered blazer with a signature bow-tie. Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys and Gwen Stefani were also among those in attendance.
