Some dazzled, others glowed.
They all had one thing in common, the fact that they each looked a million dollars.
Anna Beatriz Barros in Roberto Cavalli
Yes, it's the dress from the new fragrance campaign. And yes, she rocked it.
Diane Kruger in Chanel
Karl's muse and friend is ever loyal and ever beautiful.
Doutzen Kroes in Atelier Versace
A vision in white, Doutzen's still got it.
Lily Donaldson in J. Mendel
Ms Donaldson is all bronzed, bold and bejeweled.
Natasha Poly and Anja Rubik both in Emilio Pucci
Both girls opted for a sheer black number from Pucci, so I wonder, who won this battle of the ball-gowns?
Erin Wasson in Antonio Berardi
The mullet dress making headlines once again.
Liu Wen in Roberto Cavalli
A sea of blue makes its way across the room, it's Liu Wen.
Kirsten Dunst in Dolce & Gabbana and Kristen Stewart in Balenciaga
Kirsten and Kristen pose for the paparazzi.
Wow, these women really know how to dress for a Gala. This year, Roberto Cavalli and Emilio Pucci gowns were spotted most, as was anything sheer and sleek. Also, as usual, the go-to colour when in doubt was white. Some very pleased actresses and models, and some extremely pleased fans.
