Toning it down a bit from last year, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West arrived at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute for the 2014 Met Gala tonight (May 5).

Fans and shutterbugs alike clamored to catch a glimpse as the couple meandered around the arrivals area, chatting with other famous folks. Kim looked stunning in a Lanvin gown.

This year, the Met Gala celebrates legendary American couturier Charles James, who has a whole exhibit called “Charles James: Beyond Fashion” to pay tribute to his vast contributions over the years.

One of fashion’s top names Zac Posen sang Mr. James’ praises in a recent interview- "James' balance of structure, glamour and technique...he was a scientist as well as an emotional artist, and the pieces are elegant, glamorous and erotic. I have had a sneak peek of the exhibit, and it looks spectacular.”
