Zayn Malik & Gigi Hadid

Loved Zayn’s metal arms, it was very terminator-esque and Gigi’s hand jewellery was also quite nice but I really loved her silver pointed manicure!

Lupita Nyong’o

Kudos to Lupita’s team for keeping things interesting and fresh with her natural hair and natural-looking extensions. This layered bun was regal and had a futuristic feel.

Zoe Kravitz

I really liked her outfit with the ‘wings’, it was reminiscent of her character Angel Salvadore in the X-men: First Class movie. She wore all black but it definitely wasn’t boring with her accessories, see the mask and shoes below.

Saoirse Ronan

Notice how her dress transforms from day to night by making it shorter, using the feathers on the shoe as a clutch bag, removing the brooch from her waist and changing her hairstyle.

    I like Lupitas theme but she looks rough. Jordan Dunn is the only one who is slaying followed by Lupita.

    The theme for this year’s Met Gala was “Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology’ so be prepared for lots of metallics and sparkle! i believe this explains the outfits.

    Lupita looks like an African Queen! No need for a crown. Our hair is indeed our glory.

    Rihanna wasn’t there. The organisers might have as well cancelled the whole thing ?

    Katy Perry superstar.
    Lulu’s hair – Idea!
    What did they put in the IV to make everyone show up in cyborg-wear 🙂
    Why you no put Kanye cat-eye join?
    Cool costumes, better than wearing sex-appeal everytime, which gets trashy and boring.
    Isn’t MaSha supposed to be in purgatory right now, re: being investigated for using a banned substance?
