Fashion’s biggest night might just be Twitter’s too.
The Met Gala arrived once again, and all the celebrities were dressing according to theme. This year, the dress code called for Gilded Glamour, a continuation of the Costume Institute’s exhibition, dubbed “In America,” which began last year with “A Lexicon of Fashion.” The second part of the exhibition, “An Anthology of Fashion,” centers “sartorial narratives that relate to the complex and layered histories” of the nation’s formative eras, according to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
As per usual, the glitzy high-fashion event invited admiration as much as it did commentary from the Twitter masses. From the eyebrow-raising theme to some dazzling outfit reveals, find the funniest tweets about the best (and worst) looks of the night ahead.
