The annual Met Gala, a fundraiser hosted to help benefit the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institution marks the grand opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit. Each event celebrates that year’s Costume Institute exhibition and sets the tone for the theme in which guests are expected to dress.
This years honoree is designer Rei Kawakubo’s, featuring her daring designs for the Tokyo based line, Comme des Garcons (Art of the In-Between). The ball leurs A-listers from actors to designers to the music world, all eager to make their mark with their elegant, outrageous and scandalous choices.

Katy Perry, one of the events co-host, stepped out wearing what resembles the outfit she wore on the front cover of an issue of Vogue. Styled by Jamie Mizrahi, Perry’s bright red ensemble certainly caught the attention of many.

The iconic duo, Blake Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds, walked the Met carpet hand in hand. Lively’s show-stopper blue, feather dress and Reynold’s matching blue bowtie proved to be a public favorite.
Selena Gomez and the Weeknd
Another favorite pair, Selena Gomez and Abel Makonnen Tesfaye, also known as the Weeknd, debuted as couple on the carpet. Wearing a more simple look, Gomez wears a light pink dress with a bold pink eye.
Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner
As fashion icons, the Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, and Kylie Jenner showcased their different styles. Surprisingly, Kardashian wore a more conserved look wearing a plain white dress and sandals, no bag, no accessories. Kendall Jenner on the other hand went big wearing a black, transparent dress made entirely of crystal and thread. Kendall’s dress was most definitely the most scandalous of the night, considering she was almost entirely naked. Kylie Jenner sported a nude look and blonde hair. While she also wore a transparent dress, it wasn’t nearly as outrageous as Kendall’s.
