The Met Gala is arguably fashion's biggest night, with the most stylish celebrities, editors, and insiders coming out in full force to celebrate the Costume Institute's spring exhibition. The year's official theme may have been "Rei Kawakubo/Commes des Garcons," but the Twitterverse was all about discerning what the 2017 Met Gala red carpet actually looked like — be it your favorite cartoon characters or everyday objects.
Let's be real, memes are the best part of any major cultural event. While all the celebrities at the Met Gala looked incredible, the internet couldn't help cracking some clever jokes about the most over-the-top ensembles. The Met Gala isn't your typical red carpet event in that it's all about celebrating fashion design as an art form, and so there are always bound to be some outfits that, while stunning, aren't the most wearable for daily life. But what they lack in practicality, they make up for in meme-ability.
Plenty of the looks at Sunday night's event inspired hilarious Twitter comparisons, but that doesn't mean they weren't gorgeous. Check out everything that the Met Gala 2017 red carpet looked like, and if your fave is on this list, just remember — it's all in good fun!

I think that Rei Kawakubo would actually really appreciate this one.
But if Grimace was totally chic.

She has the pose down.

Mascara wands are pretty graceful.

Even the Queen of Fashion isn't safe from some good-natured ribbing on Met Gala night.
