Every year the Met Ball, held in New York, provides us with opportunities to giggle at how ridiculous celebrities are, and this year was no exception. The sartorial theme was ‘Fashion in an Age of Technology’ – futuristic, basically – and they all stepped up to the plate to entertain us. Kanye in wolf contacts! Zayn Malik looking like a half-dressed Tin Man! Lady Gaga as a Thundercat! Thank you, the Met Ball. Thank you for this.
Kate Hudson wore a cut-out bridal inspired dress, while Lady Gaga looked like a character from Mad Max: Beyond the Thunderdome.
Kanye wore a custom-made Balmain jacket and icy blue contact lenses, while wife Kim Kardashian opted for a dress that caused social media cads to liken her to C3PO from Star Wars.
Agyness Deyn wowed us with her pop art-y, envelope-pushing outfits in her younger, modelling days, but now the actress opts for a more elegant look.
Some said that British Vogue contributing editor Alexa Chung won the night, fashion-wise, with her 70s-influenced, jewel-encrusted two-piece.
Bad Neighbours 2 star Chloë Grace Moretz went for a more understated look than some of her fellow party-goers.
Actress and style queen Chloe Sevigny looked typically awesome in a gothic Simone Rocha gown.
FKA Twigs wore Atelier Versace while former NME cover star Robert Pattinson went for a more conservative tuxedo.
Florence Welch went for a futuristic Miss Havisham vibe in this Gucci dress.
Grimes – who released our favourite record of last year, Art Angels, slayed in this bright Louis Vuitton number.
Jared Leto looked like a right Joker in this white Gucci suit with pimp cane.
Selena Gomez juxtaposed a dainty polkadot dress with a Dr. Marten style shoes. ‘Dangerous Woman’ indeed.
Sporting her new(ish) blonde bob, Tay slayed in Louis Vuitton.
I Saw The Light Star Tom Hiddleston reportedly went for a big lads’ night with Idris Elba after the shindig.
Willow Smith wore Chanel while brother Jaden opted for Louis Vuitton. Both are renowned for saying ridiculous things – see Jaden’s reliably amazing Twitter for evidence – and we would KILL to eavesdrop on their conversation at the Met Ball.
