As a welcome break from the non-stop Fashion Week posts dominating our social media feeds, "Saturday Night Live"'s 40th anniversary extravaganza was the talk of the town in New York on Sunday. The event pulled a lot of star power: Aside from reuniting our favorite cast members of yore (Will Ferrell, Ana Gasteyer, Molly Shannon and Amy Poehler to name just a few), the 3.5 hour special included appearances from some of the biggest stars from film, television and music, including Miley Cyrus, Bradley Cooper, Taylor Swift and Kerry Washington.

Before reviving some of "SNL"'s fan favorite sketches like "Wayne's World," "The Californians," "Celebrity Jeopardy" and "Weekend Update," the A-listers took to the red carpet in their best evening wear. From Emma Stone's sequined Dior dress to "Fifty Shades of Grey" star Dakota Johnson's party-ready silver Sonia Rykiel number, a handful of the evening's ensembles rivaled what we've been seeing at Fashion Week. Read on to see the best looks from the night, and then we suggest getting lost in a "SNL" YouTube clip black hole — we've been fighting off the urge all morning.
