The biggest red carpet event of the year is happening tonight in New York City.

The 2014 Met Gala, also known as the Costume Institute Gala or simply The Met Ball, takes place tonight at The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute.

Titled "Charles James: Beyond Fashion," this year's exhibition honors the late British designer also known as "James Shape" or the architect of fashion because of the way he "sculpted" his signature dresses and gowns. 

This year was also the opening of the Costume Institute's new Anna Wintour Costume Center, officially inaugurated on Monday morning by First Lady Michelle Obama and the famous Vogue editor-in-chief.
