If those flowers kind of look like they’re glowing, it’s not because you’re drunk – it’s because they are. It’s 150 LED lights that lit up and changed colors based on how many people were tweeting #CognitiveDress. Now THAT is some Manus x Machina shit right there. Kudos, Karolina. Girlfriend does not fuck around when it comes to the Met Gala.

Okay, so it’s actually a little bit basic, at least for Zendaya and the theme of the evening. But even though there’s no Michael Kors gown in the world that will really push the boundaries of fashion, Zendaya found a way to bring her particular brand of badassery to this dress, with the bowl haircut (somehow chic, in defiance of all logic) and the dark jewels. Out of all the women who heard “tech” and thought “metallics,” Zendaya at least did so FLAWLESSLY.

Love the latex, though I’m not sold on the smoky eye or the clutch. But I won’t make fun of a woman who’s wearing the skin of her enemies. That’s some House Bolton shit right there.

SOLANGE KNOWLES

Solange is wearing rubber thigh-high stirrups, and none of us should be surprised.

FREIDA PINTO
gown by Tory Burch

I thought this was a total snooze until I realized those embellishments were color-changing crystal panels. So, at least she made a solid attempt at the theme, even though the wires hidden in the seams are making this look a little wrinkled and awkward. But, hey, I’ll take a swing and a miss over a refusal to swing any day of the week.

JARED LETO

Well, at least it’s not another black tux!

KENDALL JENNER
gown and shoes by Atelier Versace

Loathe as I am to compliment anyone in the Kardashian Klan, I’ll give her this one. It’s a cool dress, and she looks great in it.

POPPY DELEVINGNE
gown by Marchesa, purse by Oroton

A flapper gown + thirty pounds of metal does not equal “technology,” Poppy. Also, there is definitely a such thing as too many accessories, and you passed that line about 30 necklaces ago.

I feel like I should care more about seeing a harness on the red carpet, but… I don’t. The color is boring, and even the harness doesn’t do enough to make this particularly memorable.

Girlfriend always shows up looking like upholstery.

AMANDLA STENBERG

Fly as fuck… for a different event. But I’m not really seeing the link between this disco-leisure suit and technology, even though I want to, because I think Amandla is a goddamn national treasure.

LADY GAGA
jumpsuit by Atelier Versace

Honestly? This is kind of boring. It’s standard four-years-ago Gaga with some extra 80s hair metal styling thrown in for good measure. It’s not nearly wild enough for this event.

EMMA STONE
gown by Prada, shoes by Christian Louboutin

Another fucking harness? Really? And also, what the fuck happened to Emma Stone’s fashion sense? She used to be one of my favorite celebrities to watch, but now, it’s just a sea of mildly disappointing and majorly unremarkable gowns.

A total waste of time.

NICKI MINAJ
gown by Moschino

Poorly-fit, off-theme, and frankly, kind of exhausting.

KATE HUDSON
gown by Versace

One of the ugliest red carpet gowns in recent memory.

CHLOË SEVIGNY
gown by Simone Rocha

It must be nice to be in Ms. Sevigny’s head, where the entire world is some weird themed party that combines 1930s Hollywood with 1990s ecstasy-fueled raves.

SELENA GOMEZ
gown by Louis Vuitton

Aboslutely not.

I don’t even know what I’m looking at.

Ballerina who got hit by a bus.

I didn’t think anything could make me hate America more than Donald Trump did… until I saw this dress.

We’ll finish up the #MetGala2016 coverage tomorrow by tearing apart the most basic of bitches. Stay tuned!
