This year’s Met Gala theme was ‘tech white tie,’ which is pretty broad, and the celebs didn’t disappoint us either in coming up with some inspiring ensembles. The gala was to celebrate the opening of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Manus x Machina exhibition.
And now, without further ado, let’s take a look at what fashion’s biggest names are wearing for the annual star-studded event.
1. Taylor Swift
Everyone’s favorite pop star, Taylor Swift, shunned ‘that red lip classic thing’ in favor of a vampy dark lip color, her newly acquired bleached blonde hair, and a Louis Vuitton mini dress. To round out her look, she donned a pair of knee-length strappy stilettos.
2. Naomi Watts
Naomit Watts walked the Met Gala red carpet with a techno-inspired Burberry gown, which was complemented by her vintage hairstyle and classy jewelry.
3. Selena Gomez
Taylor Swift’s BFF and a pop star in her own right, Gomez graced the Met Gala red carpet in a Louis Vuitton dress paired with a fitted sleeveless leather jacket and a pair of sturdy, chunky shiny leather boots.
4. Kendall Jenner
The supermodel from the Kardashian klan wore an Atelier Versace cutout halter neck gown with geometric prints and minimal jewelry.
Queen Bey wore a figure-hugging skin-tight latex gown from Riccardo Tisci, which was complemented by her flawless makeup. A nude lip color, dark eye makeup, and long blond-highlighted tresses topped off her look.
6. Lady Gaga
The queen of shockers, Lady Gaga, wore Atelier Versace ensemble, a formal leotard paired with a metallic jacket and sheer tights. Bleached blonde hair, red lip color, and impossible platform heels rounded out her look.
7. Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik
New couple former One Direction member Zayn and supermodel Gigi walked the Met Gala red carpet together this year. Though donning Versace, Zayn looked like a cyborg-in-progress with two robotic arms. And his supermodel girlfriend wore a grey gown with a choker neck and a sheer skirt.

While Kanye wore a pair of ripped jeans, a white t shirt, suede boots, and a bedazzled jacket, Kim K wore a figure-hugging silver gown with a thigh high split.
