Upstaged by the attendance of Tim Tebow, these celebrities dispersed to three locations the Met in order to fully dance away the pain: the Ukrainian Institute of America, the Boom Boom Room, and Crown all hosted parties that were hit up by roaming models, actors, and musicians.

    So, which party had the best-dressed attendees?

  • The most amount of celebrities showed up to the Ukranian Institute's after party. Indie darling Greta Gerwig was able to snag the attention of otherwise occupied photogs from the gala, though she was sans boyfriend Noah Baumbach.

  • The Transformer star showed us the dark side of her moon in her semi-transparent ensemble.

  • Taking a cue from Florence Welch, Ms. Vergara is a two-tier treat.

  • The model/actress takes tips from the actress/model.

  • The gala had enough CW kids to create another Gossip Girl spin-off, including The Vampire Diaries Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerholder.

  • Wearing a furry Tom Ford ensemble, Victoria Secret model Chanel Iman stands apart from the pack.

  • The Watchmen actress looks glamerous in an empire waist. How many people can say that?

  • Yellow is a daring color to wear to a ball, though DvF looks way better than an unfortunate January Jones.

  • Justin Long, proving that you don't need to be super swanky to stand out in a sea of tuxes...just stand next to someone dressed down!

  • Michael Kors and a Michael Kors dress, being filled by someone.

  • Chloe Sevigny, taking a cue from Ms. Huntington-Whiteley.

  • We aren't exactly sure what look Alexa Chung is going for, but it's very unique!

  • Judd Apatow's wife and star looks like Cinderella.

  • This is when Greta Gerwig had to leave. There can't be two green dresses at a party!

  • Katherine Hepburn incarnate Emma Stone didn't need boyfriend Andrew Garfield to make an entrance.

  • Cleopatra with red hair.

  • We'd like How to Succeed in Business's Rosie Hemingway's dress a lot more if it didn't look like it came from Century 21.

  • Over on the West Side, model China Chow pulls of a dress that's 1/3 cat's cradle.

  • For some reason, Kristen Stewart dressed up more for the after party than she did for the actual event.

  • The Disney star is just happy to be here.

  • Gary Oldman, getting ballsy with a white tux before Labor Day.

  • The 10,000 B.C. actress switched out of a silver gown into a less flashy gold dress.

  • Elizabeth Banks seems to still believe she's in Hunger Games.

  • Pharrell knows that nothing spruces up a tux like metallic hair.

  • On the Upper East Side, Rosaria Dawson kept the party going.

  • If you were one of the world's highest-earning models, you'd flash your assets too.

  • These two kids know that "after party" means "show more leg."

  • A philanthropist finally makes the lineup!

  • Another blonde model wearing white. There seems to be a theme of the evening.

  • We're happy for the splash of color, courtesy of the crop-topped Big Love star...

  • ...only to find the exact same hue on George Clooney's current squeeze!

  • Oh, now we know who we can blame for styling all those models!
