Met Gala 2017: Every Red Carpet Look You Need to See

The 2017 Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala is finally here, and somehow the red carpet looks are even better than expected. Year after year, celebrities, models, and fashion insiders outdo themselves with unthinkable attire that gets the public talking for months. This year is no different, as the theme is honoring Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons, the second living designer to be featured since Yves Saint Laurent.  

Thanks to Kawakubo’s constant knack for pushing boundaries, this year’s attendees clearly decided to follow suit. Since the number of red carpet looks at this particular event can get overwhelming, we’re bringing you the best of the evening right here.

Go on to see the best red carpet looks from the 2017 Met Gala.
