Instagram Guy Recreates 2016 MET Gala Dresses

We always knew that all the glitz and glam and the extreme fashion of the 2016 Met Gala red carpet doesn’t really translate in real life. But Brazilian Instagrammer and fashion expert João Paulo shows that you too can don the stylish 2016 Met Gala outfits, by recreating them with cheap, everyday materials like tinfoil, paper, duct tape and of course lots of imagination.

From Taylor Swift’s metallic mini dress to Kate Hudson’s applique gowns, João Paulo successfully copies them to a T and demonstrates that you don’t have to spend crazy amounts of money to copy your favorite star’s red carpet look.
