The 2017 Met Gala was held on Monday evening (May 1) in New York City and the event packed plenty of star power.
This year’s theme celebrates the museum’s Costume Institute exhibition “Rei Kawakubo / Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between,” which features approximately 150 womenswear designs that Kawakubo has created for Japanese brand Comme des Garcons since her first presentation at Paris Fashion Week in 1981.

ATL rappers Migos also pulled up looking “Bad and Boujee.” The trap trio wore matching Versace tuxedos and covered themselves in a more than generous amount of bling.
Kylie Jenner posted what she calls the “annual bathroom selfie” during the annual gala. The photo which includes her sisters Kendall Jenner and Kim Kardashian as well as Sean “Diddy” Combs, Frank Ocean, A$AP Rocky and Oscar winner Brie Larson might be the best selfie of the year so far.
