Met Gala 2016: The Best Robot Party of the Year

met gala 2016

The Met Gala, also known as the Oscars of Fashion, happened last night, and the red carpet was blinged out like never before. The theme was Manus x Machina, so celebs and models took the opportunity to go maximalist when it came to shine and sequins. There were even robot arms, at least one mile-high updo, and plenty of platinum accoutrements.

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour looked particularly stunning in a cream Chanel gown with a tasseled hem, and her daughter Bee Shaffer was a dramatic foil to her mom in a black floral embroidered Alexander McQueen gown. Beyonce was shockingly not naked, and Sarah Jessica parker and Tavi teamed up in just kind of ignoring the whole machina thing.

Guests took turns in a Terminator-esque light room (check it out below), and Julie Macklowe won for most literal interpretation of the theme and/or best C3PO impersonation.

This was my 2 year old son's favorite #metgala look last night. He said “Dora the Explorer.”
