TIME 100 Red Carpet Looks

  • Gayle King The TIME 100 Most Influential People gala was held in New York City last night. Politicians, celebrities and sports stars all came together to celebrate their contributions and success. Here are a few of the many great read carpet looks from the night:

    Gayle King, 56, looked stunning in her royal blue gown. Everything about the dress flattered her figure—the neckline looked sexy and the wrap from her shoulder to waist was slimming. Her blue sequin heels peeked out from the bottom of her dress and matched perfectly.
  • Michele Bachmann The House Rep from Minnesota, Michele Bachmann, kept her red carpet look classic with a sleeveless black cocktail dress. Bachmann, 55, accessorized with simple diamond jewelry and a gorgeous aqua embellished shawl. We probably would have told her to leave the stockings at home (or at least wear completely nude ones,) but otherwise we love her look!
  • Sandra Lee Sandra Lee, 44, looked gorgeous in her whimsical nude gown. With all the pleats and layers, we’re glad she kept her jewelry simple. The red clutch added a nice pop of color.
  • Mark Wahlberg Mark Wahlberg, 39, should probably just wear a suit and bow tie all the time.
  • Martha Stewart We are just loving Martha's gold capri pants and matching sling back heels. The contrasting black top was perfect and the long pearls made for a lovely accessory.

    We wish she'd remove that black rain-slicker-esque jacket, however. Stewart, 69, was posing wearing it on the red carpet. Her outfit would look far better without it!
