The first Monday in May is a very special day in the world of fashion. Some of the world's most famous and stylish celebrities come together in one place to celebrate clothing and design, all thanks to the Met Gala. And, like all the best parties, there is always a theme. For the 2017 Met Gala red carpet guests were encouraged to dress in looks that reflected this year's theme: Rei Kawakubo x Commes des Garcons. So, yes, there's a whole lot to work with there when it comes to fashion.
With guests like Kim Kardashian, Anna Wintour, Ashley Graham, and Hailey Baldwin set to attend (an eclectic group, am I right?), the possibilities of eccentric gowns and generally incredible garments were endless. Although no one is required to follow the theme perfectly, when it comes to Commes des Garcons, one can only hope that celebs would try something at least a little out there. So did this year's attendees disappoint with their outfits in the end? Were all the looks as fantastically weird and glorious as the clothing from Commes des Garcons so often is? Well, judge for yourself. Here are all the looks from the 2017 Met Gala.
A classic Chanel dress for Anna, of course.
Look at that pattern. The detail.
