This year's gala theme was “American Independence” which gave attendees a wide berth of ideas to play with from founding fathers in powdered wigs and star-spangled gowns, to Lady Liberty cosplay and, of course, all things red, white, and blue.
The celebrities did come out in number to showcase what they got when it came to fashion that night.
Before we go any further let me explain what the purpose of the met gala first. The Met Gala is the fashion industry's equivalent of the Oscars, and sees designers, models, and Hollywood stars gather together to compete for media coverage.
The event raises money for the Costume Institute - the only one of the Met's curatorial departments that has to fund itself.
Now that everybody is familiar with why the Met Gala are always held each year let us jump straight into fashion and see which celebrities nailed it and those who didn't who just off ramped. The theme came with three colours just to give the designers something to work with. The chosen colours were Red, White and Blue.
Well not all celebrities were happy with those colours that were chosen that is why they didn't even bother picking them.
We shall start with the worst dressed and it doesn't matter where they followed the theme and colour scheme or not.
Kim Kardashian just went Kanye West on us and she came to the Met Gala with her face covered and nobody even recognized her, she probably that one celebrity that paparazzi didn't care if they got a shot of her or not on the night.
Everything she wore screamed Kanye West.
The entire gala looked like a Kanye West fashion show; everything that the celebrities had on was just bizarre and hideous. It just didn't scream American Independence it portrayed something else, with all the bright and dark colours to wearing oversized garments.
Then some came with their own colours which makes them fall in the ugly category because they went on and choose their own colours that didn't represent the theme.
Thankfully some celebrities got the memo and brought out their A-game and showed us what we wanted to see. It wasn't a bad day at the office for paparazzi after all.
Who was your worst and best dressed celebrity at the Met Gala?
