It doesn't get any crème-de-la-crème-ier than the Met Gala, otherwise known as the Fashion Oscars. This year, who took a chance and paid a proper tribute to Rei Kawakubo? And who played it safer but came out looking 💯 too? See our best-dressed list ahead.
It's puffy but pretty, a royal blue silk, and just the right amount of over-the-top construction.
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.
In what you could call the opposite of playing it safe, Lily Collins turned it up to 11 with this play off of the Rei Kawakubo cropped wigs, an ultra vampy lip, and a multi-tiered ballgown skirt.
Always a badass on the red carpet, but especially in this futuristic trench dress with a train by Ralph Lauren.
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.
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.
It's a weird combination: denim and embroidered tulle in this Off-White Dress, but the effect is simply genius.
What's not to love from the platinum pixie cut to the trailing pink satin dress (with a contrasting black interior)?
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).
Bleached brows and this Diane von Furstenberg dress are a winning combination.
One of the only women attending in a suit stole our attention in this bright blue, sequined number.
Snaps for the cropped tuxedo and the matchy-matchy-but-not-tacky Doc Martens.
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.
