The 17 Most Gloriously WTF Looks At The 2017 Met Gala

This year honored Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo.

Last night was the Met Gala, the annual fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. But more importantly, the event offers the most ogled red carpet this side of the Oscars. This year’s gala honored Comme des Garçons founder Rei Kawakubo, at least giving the stars a designer to steer toward.

Beyond that, all bets were off.

We’re not gonna shade anyone—what fun would the gala be if everyone played it safe? Instead we’re sharing our picks for the most deliciously over-the-top

  4. Amy Fine Collins

    As Gay Star News pointed out, fashion writer Amy Fine Collins’ Thom Browne ensemble is suspiciously similar to Violet Chachki’s gender-bending runway look from Season 7.
