All The Looks From The 2016 Met Gala Were As Out Of This World As We Had Hoped For — PHOTOS
If 2016's red carpet looks have ceased to amaze you so far, prepare to be stunned. All the looks from the 2016 Met Gala prove that this party is the fashion event of the year! Oscars, Schmoscars. Grammys, what? If the glamorous gowns and black tie tuxedoes of these major events have bored you to death, restore your faith in fashion with this year's out-of-this world attire from tonight's haute couture fete.
Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that it is a gala and not just some awards show. After all, these celebrities and models have been working with their favorite designers over the past year to come up with show-stopping get-ups to match this year's incredible theme. And unlike some of the former ones, this year's theme was 100 percent on point. ICYMI, tonight's guests are dressing up with "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology" in mind. We're not taking a trip back to the past, folks. Beyonce, Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, and co. are all taking us into the future with their looks this evening, and I could not be more thrilled.
Here are all of the high-tech, high-fashion looks from the 2016 Met Gala.
