The annual Time 100 Gala brings notables from many fields — from pop culture to science — together for one night over a formal dinner featuring performances and speeches by various guests. Kim Kardashian turned up for the occasion in a seriously elegant Sophie Theallet gown that still managed to display a significant amount décolletage, as is her custom. Kanye West went for a less conventional look, as is also his custom, in what appears like a distressed white t-shirt and a dark velvet jacket/buttonless cardigan situation. You can be sure he looked unlike any other man at the event — but then again, not every man at the event is Time cover material. 

In the lamest publicity stunt of the night, actress/comedian Amy Schumer fell at Kardashian's and West's feet as they posed together on the red carpet. West registered no emotion in response, which seemed appropriate. See a video of the incident here

The Kardashian-Wests weren't the only ones turning heads at the Gala. Emma Watson was wonderfully sleek in a Dior pant and sash ensemble and Julianne Moore rocked an asymmetrical black sparkly dress. Other notable guests include Karlie Kloss in Alexander Wang, Jenna Lyons and Naomi Campbell. See our favorite red carpet images from the gala below.
