Met Costume Gala - Make me a superhero!

The Metropolitan Costume Institute Gala held on May 6 brought out the heavy hitters in both fashion and entertainment. The theme for the night was "Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy" but it was more fashion than fantasy.

While most of the dresses that night were gorgeous, many did not reflect the theme at all. However, there were few brave souls who took the risk and did their best interpretation of the superhero fantasy theme, both retro and futuristic. Some of these dresses would not have worked on a normal red carpet but as it was a costume gala, I think they were perfectly fitting.

So my question to you, who had the best superhero(ine) costume?
