So the Met Gala in New York City on Monday night was a red-carpet party in itself. But what’s a party without an after-party?

A-listers, designers and runway stars relocated to various venues to continue the celebrations – after changing their outfits. Some went to Michael Kors’s event at the Mark hotel on the Upper East Side. Katie Holmes, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Tommy Hilfiger turned up – and Katie changed into a different Zac Posen design.

Model Karen Elson swopped her red Dolce & Gabbana gown for a simple black number, also by Dolce & Gabbana.

The Top of the Standard party, according to the The NewYork Times, was hosted by Yahoo! Style, Sarah Jessica Parker and Katy Perry, and attended by Sofia Vergara (Modern Family) among others.

Rihanna’s party was perhaps the biggest: Jessica Alba, Justin Bieber, Jennifer Lawrence – also in a different, breathtaking gown – and Francisco Costa of Calvin Klein danced late into the night.
