However, the celebrities in attendance, which included more than a few runway models, chose instead to highlight their non-technological assets. Forget too-clunky gowns made of foil — many guests chose to rock the sheerest, skimpiest, and downright eye-popping dresses around, which ranged from awe-inspiring to ridiculous.  PHOTOS: 20 Head-Turning Looks From the 2015 Met Gala See 20 of the most sizzling looks from this year's Met Gala below:
