A coterie of stars came out in their best goth finery as luxe fashion label Givenchy and its designer Riccardo Tisci hosted a dinner party to celebrate the closing of Maria Abramovic's "The Artist Is Present" Exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art last night in New York City.

And while the fashion house is recognized for being one of the most influential of our times, there were some celebs who were just trying a bit too hard to get into the artsy spirit last night.

Among them was Christina Ricci whose lacy neoprene number from the Fall 2010 collection consisted of a half-moon shield that obscured her top half save for a hint of underneath boob (or "neathage"). The adorable actress's ensemble just looked forced.

And since she is no stranger to the questionably dressed list, it was of little surprise that Bjork also managed to wear something that resembled a crumpled mass of gold foil. The eternally eclectic songstress paired her ruffled confection with semi-sheer stockings and open toe gold sandals.

Fortunately Givenchy did score some wins for the evening as Ciara, Liv Tyler and even Courtney Love looked pitch perfect in their floor-length black gothic gowns.

But don't take our word for it. See what Christina and Bjork were wearing in the gallery below and let us know what you think by leaving a comment.
