Celebs played dress up in the Mark Hotel before heading to the Met Gala last night

Only the best celebs are invited to the Met Gala each year. And only the best of the best celebs get ready for the party of the year at the Mark Hotel around the corner from the museum.

Last night, some of those special beings were kind enough to pose for photos from screaming fans and paparazzi waiting outside the hotel — before being whisked away to the museum in one of the waiting town cars. We’ve gathered up our favorites photos below (along with a few shots that were taken inside the hotel). Now the only question is, who got to stay in the $75,000-a-night penthouse?
