You Need To See These Epic Looks From The 2017 Met Gala

Aka fashion prom.

share with your friends
Officially known as The Costume Institute benefit, otherwise known as the Met Ball, takes place annually on the first Monday in May. This means that last night, the biggest celebs strutted their stuff on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Gossip Girl-style. Hosted by Anna Wintour, the black-tie extravaganza is a fundraiser for the Institute's fashion exhibition. 

Perhaps the most extravagant red carpet out there, Met Gala fashion is quite unlike your typical awards show. There is always a theme and guests are encouraged to dress appropriately (this year's theme was avant garde Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçonsinspired by the Japanese designer's bold, architectural pieces). Attendees use the possibility to interpret the theme as an excuse to experiment, and this year was no exception.

On the same red carpet, we saw Bella Hadid wearing a backless, body-hugging glittering catsuit from Alexander Wang, Cara Delevingne rocking a futuristic silver jumpsuit by Chanel, and Katy Perry covered head to toe in red chiffon complete with cathedral veil by Margiela. Rihanna wore an unforgettable tribute to Rei Kawakubo in an ornate, floral ensemble by Comme des Garçons paired with lace-up heels and bold, rose-colored makeup (only to change to a pyjama look for the after party). 

Whether you love the Met Gala for it's bold fashion or for the epic mirror selfies, the looks below are nothing short of inspiring.
