Gisele Bündchen arrived in sky high heels on the arm of her husband, Tom Brady, to the Costume Institute Benefit in NYC on Monday night, but by the end of the evening it was Tom's job to carry her stilettos home.

Tom, on the other hand, went with a bright blue number fresh off his big Kentucky Derby win.
Gisele chose a daring look from designer Anthony Vaccarello for the event, which celebrated the Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West made a grand entrance to NYC's Metropolitan Museum of Art for last night's Costume Institute Benefit.

The couple, who are expecting their first child in July, attended the gala together for the first time, since Kanye was the live entertainment for the event. Although Kim was scrutinized for her covered-up look, Kanye came to her defense during his performance last night on stage adding a line into his song directed at Kim singing, "You're so awesome." His sentiments were reflected on the red carpet as well as Kim and Kanye shared many affectionate moments on their way into the fashionable affair. Click through to see them all!
The annual Costume Institute Benefit is all about fashion and fun, but before the stars can celebrate inside the bash, they have to make their way into the Metropolitan Museum of Art by way of the grand staircase.

We've rounded up the most stunning staircase shots from this year's gala, starting with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's moment on their way into the Met.
