Hundreds of celebs walked the 2016 Met Gala red carpet celebrating the opening of the Manus X Machina: Fashion in the Age of Technology exhibition. Designers, singers, actresses, models – and basically anyone who can afford the $25,000 tickets – walked the 2016 Met Gala red carpet donning glamorous attires.
With the Met Ball being one of the biggest fashion events of the year, attendees are given free rein to wear out of this world, jaw dropping haute couture ensembles without looking out of place. Let’s see who turned on the eleganza extravaganza and who fell flat bringing hot mess couture on the 2016 Met Gala red carpet.
