Finally! A red carpet event whose attendees wear skirts short enough for us to get a good old gawp at their footwear - and what spectacular shoes they were. One of the biggest nights in fashion, The Met Gala is a chance for the great and the good of Hollywood to dress up to the nines and strut their stuff to the world's press. This year's sartorial choices did not disappoint...but what would you expect at an event where US Vogue editor Anna Wintour was holding court?

We saw some impressive looks from Emma Stone, Scarlett Johansson and many more, but Carey Mulligan stole the show with her shimmering fish-scale Prada dress; an absolute vision in silver and bronze that appeared to change colour as she moved. Mulligan was selected to wear the dress by Miuccia Prada herself, and the simple satin shoes she chose to wear with it were entirely appropriate for a frock that was always going to take centre stage! But plenty more celebs wore shoes that were worthy of comment. Check out the gallery to see whose footwear was most worthy of merit!
