I haven't written about a Met Gala in years because I've felt so-so about the dresses but this year I LOVED 90% of what was worn! So this is a picture heavy post that I've divided into categories based upon my interpretation of the theme. All pictures are credited to Getty Photos which I yanked from the Internet.
Okay let's start with the co-chairwomen of the event ~
Amal Clooney in Richard Quinn
Reminds me of an outfit Lana Turner wore in Imitation of Life
Rihanna in Maison Margiela by John Galliano
The Twitterverse went crazy over this look! Me not so much!
The other co-chair was Donatella Versace and I was unimpressed by what she was wearing.
Next up - The Angels ~
Amanda Seyfried in Prada
Rachel Evan Woods in Altuzarra
Kate Bosworth in Oscar de la Renta
Katy Perry is a literal angel with those wings!
She's wearing Versace
Yara Shahidi in Chanel
Rosie Huntington Whiteley in Ralph Lauren
...that halo headpiece!

Ariana Grande wearing the Sistine Chapel as interpreted by Vera Wang
Blake Lively in Versace
Emilia Clarke in Dolce & Gabbana
Rita Ora in Prada wearing another amazing headpiece!
Sarah Jessica Parker in Dolce & Gabbana
Cardi B in Moschino and I kept thinking a Tudor Queen

Tracey Ellis Ross beautiful in pink wearing Michael Kors
Lena Waite wearing a Gay Pride cape!
These are my picks! They are what made me sit up and take notice or sigh in wonder. I LOVED the choices the actresses, designers and stylists have made. I loved the amazing headpieces. And one more time, I can't wait to see this exhibit. The exhibit runs from tomorrow, May 8th until October 8th. I hope if you're coming to NYC during that time that you make your way over to the Met to see the Exhibit!
...as always more later!
