What many consider to be the fashion event of the year, the Met Gala, hosted by New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, witnessed celebrities dressing up in lavish and puzzling outfits while walking the red carpet last night.
Addressing this year’s of “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” theme, artists and fashionista icons from all walks of life adorned themselves in appropriate attire, with some going completely off-script. Various notable inclusions were the Kardashian/Jenner clan in matching outfits, Katy Perry acting as a personified chandelier, Lady Gaga wearing four different costumes, and Frank Ocean and Kanye West rocking simple black coats.
Perry, who had arguably the most outrageous look of the night, needed two handlers in order to keep the multiple, fully-lit ceiling fixtures from toppling off of her body. The “Born This Way” singer took a different approach by sporting two pink and two black outfits, peeling them off with help to finally reveal a set of black lingerie. Adding to her ensemble were $2 million worth of Tiffany diamonds.

Frank Ocean and Kanye West appeared to be on the same wavelength last night as they donned basic, but elegant black jackets. The “Nikes” artist carried a Prada windbreaker whereas Yeezy, who is known for his extremely expensive line of clothing, fooled fans with a sub-$50 work coat.
