Fashion heavyweights flocked to New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET) Costume Institute Gala Benefit “Celebrating the Model as Muse.” Here are a few fashion hits and misses that caught Hot Mama Daily’s attention.

The Beautiful

Eva Mendes is glorious in metallic tk

Is Eva Mendes Hot or Not in Calvin Klein?

As usual, Eva Mendes knows how to work the red carpet and looks like a glamazon in this shimmery Calvin Klein gown.  My vote?  But of course darling, Eva is on fire.  Caliente!

The Bold

Rihanna in a tux?

Is Rihanna Hot or Not in Dolce and Gabbana?

Whatever you think of Rihanna‘s style, you have to give the girl props for not being afraid to take risks.  At first glance, I loved Rihanna in this daring Dolce and Gabbana tux — a masculine fashion statement offset by a pair of  uber-feminine black pumps.   Given a second gander, however, I was taken aback by the jacket’s poofy sleeves.  My final verdict? Dressing like a boy hasn’t looked this fierce since Grace Jones’ ’80s power suit.  Hot.

The Boring

Jessica Alba in tk

Is Jessica Alba Hot or Not in Jason Wu?

Excuse me while I yawn.  The MET Costume Institute Gala was every Hollywood starlet and top model’s opportunity to pump up the wardrobe wattage.  So I’m totally underwhelmed by Miss Alba‘s beaded, blue Jason Wu mini cocktail dress paired with blah black tights.   Sorry, Jess.  Not Hot.
