The 2016 Met Gala

Ever since Blair Waldorf sat on those Met steps, the Met Gala has meant that much more to us. And two years ago when Blake and Ryan looked like that (and he looked at her like that), the Met surpassed all our expectations. So, maybe that’s why we have become so very hard to please; like we weren’t already.

The dress code for the Met Gala is themed in accordance with the annual fashion exhibition at the Met Museum’s Costume Institute. This year’s exhibition: ‘Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology’ (a mouthful, we know) explores the connection and conflict between traditional haute couture methods and new technology. Apple’s chief design officer, Jonathan Ive was one of this year’s hosts, alongside Taylor Swift, Idris Elba and Anna Wintour (bien sûr).

Nicknamed the ‘fashion Oscars’, tickets to the charity gala are like hen’s teeth. Unless you win the Euromillions, only the rich and famous may attend (with the exception of Tyga. Ouch).

The red carpet rolled out and the A-lister’s rolled in. Here’s who made the cut:

Topshop (yes, Topshop) had a good run at the carpet with current girl crush du jour Taylor Hill reminding us that it really is hard to beat the Little Black Dress.

Claire Danes had a Cinderella moment in Zac Posen.

Danes’ entire gown, made from fiber optic woven organza sourced from France, lit up. Actually. She nailed the theme.

Favourite beauty look the night? While many opted for a slightly darker, moodier theme war paint wise, we love Kendall’s peachy perfect glow and slicked back pony.

At least we know that Tom Hiddleston and Tay had a good night.
