NEW YORK (AP) — Deep reds and shimmery golds dominated as celebrities attending the annual Met Gala on Monday embraced this year’s inspiration: the massive exhibition “China: Through the Looking Glass,” a look at Chinese fashion through the ages.

Anna Wintour wore a Chanel floral gown in keeping with the theme as she walked up the stairs to kick off the gala that raises millions for her museum namesake: the Anna Wintour Costume Center.

Celebrity guests included Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Lopez, Anne Hathaway, Kerry Washington and Katie Holmes.
