The Best Looks from the 2017 Met Gala

When every other celebrity's date is a designer, you better believe the looks are top-shelf.

Rihanna

Trust Rihanna to be the most on-theme for the Met Gala (she was one of the few actually wearing CDG) and also the most fabulous at doing it, too (peep the Kabuki makeup).

Katy Perry

Maison Margiela in one of Kawukabo's most popular colors (crimson red) was just the right note to strike at this year's Met Gala. Plus, her beauty look (Pat McGrath's #DarStar006 shimmery eyeshadow and shimmery Lust lip kit) was mesmerizing.

Rose Byrne

Even a deep-V Dress that requires plenty of fashion tape to pull off would be considered playing it safe on this red carpet, but points to Rose Byrne for still looking lovelier than ever in this tulle gown and big, puffed out curls.

Lily Aldridge

This look's one you either love or hate: even though Aldridge looks like a sexy space genie in her Balenciaga boots and silky dress, she's one of the few people who actually took a risk tonight and she killed it.

Kylie Jenner

It's not exactly on theme, but when you consider that nearly every award show's unofficial theme is "naked dress," this pretty Versace gown (which takes some cues from Bey's infamous glitter Barbie dress) is right on the money.

Solange

Where there is Solange at the Met Gala, so also come the memes. Sleeping bag jokes aside, Solange in Thom Browne is exactly what we would expect from one of the weirdest Met Galas of recent years. (Never change, Solange).

Cara Delevingne

From the sleek Chanel suit to her painted and bedazzled chrome head, she may have looked like she missed last year's Manus x Machina gala, but we still couldn't take our eyes off of her.
