Let’s finish up this goddamn thing already. 

Are you caught up on the rules? Good.

Best Dressed: RIHANNA

You knew this was coming. And I can’t say it better than this person, so I won’t bother trying:

KATY PERRY
gown by Maison Margiela

Serving up blood magic Melisandre of Asshai realness.

LILY ALDRIDGE

This just in: VEILS. This one is just random enough to be absolutly fucking perfect. From the front, I liked the combo of the drapery and the boot, but I wasn’t truly sold until I saw the back:

THAT is some artful fucking draping, and such an incredible contrast from the front. Kudos, Lily.

SOLANGE KNOWLES
gown and shoes by Thom Browne, jewelry by Piaget, purse by Mark Cross

This only thing Solange Knowles could have POSSIBLY worn to this event, and it is EVERYTHING.

CLAIRE DANES
top and pants by Monse, jewelry by Fred Leighton

I know she looks a little like a pirate, but this is very Comme de Garçons. The architectural shoulder piece sold it for me.

JOURDAN DUNN

Here for it.

ZENDAYA COLEMAN
gown by Dolce & Gabbana, jewelry by Forevermark

FLAWLESS. When in doubt, wear a giant bird. And that skirt goes on FOREVER:

You could fit forty more of her in there, like a Russian nesting doll. Actually, the print works for that too.

EMMY ROSSUM
gown by Carolina Herrera, jewelry by Fred Leighton, shoes by Christian Louboutin

Left hands are SO last season.

PHARRELL WILLIAMS and HELEN LASICHANH

Pharrell, ok. Helen, you are a QUEEN for committing this hard to an ACTUAL STRAITJACKET. This is the kind of crazy that is only acceptable here.

PRIYANKA CHOPRA
gown by Ralph Lauren

I couldn’t tell if a long trench coat was really bold enough for the theme, but Priyanka sold me with the close-up:

The curve of that collar and neckline did it for me. Combined with the earrings and that fucking impeccable makeup? Chills.

TRACEE ELLIS ROSS
dress by Comme des Garçons, purse by Edie Parker, shoes by Christian Louboutin

Love. Perfectly on-theme, and she’s the rare woman who can pull this off, since her style tends towards the crazy in general.

WIZ KHALIFA
suit and shoes by Thom Browne

If he’s playing with proportions and dimensions, I applaud him. But I feel like he might just be wearing a child’s suit. Actually, that feels just weird enough to still work for this theme. So either way, well done!

JANELLE MONAE
gown by Ralph & Russo, jewelry by Tiffany & Co.

This is classic Janelle, March Fabness 2017 champion and known queen of the red carpet universe, turned up to eleven. I am all about every detail of this, particularly when you see the entire skirt:

Miranda Kerr’s entire full-skirted dress fits in, like, a THIRD of Janelle’s skirt. THAT is a motherfucking BALL GOWN, my friends.

RAMI MALEK
suit by Dior Homme

Impeccable.

GIGI HADID
gown by Tommy Hilfiger, jewelry by Jacquie Aiche, tights by Wolford, shoes by Christian Louboutin

One of the only models who gave a flying fuck about the theme. Love the eyeliner, the hair, the stocking, and the hard/soft juxtaposition.

HAILEE STEINFELD
gown by Vera Wang

One of many women who sacrificed the use of her arms for the evening, at the altar of the Met Gala Theme Gods. Bless you, Hailee, for your gift. I hope someone held a cocktail with a straw in it next to you the whole night.

CARA DELEVINGNE
suit by Chanel, shoes by Christian Louboutin

C-3POh yes, she did.

FEI FEI SUN
gown by Alberta Ferretti

Evil architectural butterfly. I dig.

LILY COLLINS
gown by Giambattista Valli, jewelry by Tiffany & Co.

The hair sells it, and then some. This would have been too princessy if Lily were too afraid to go there with the styling. But the Girl, Interrupted hair is bringing it all together.

ZOË KRAVITZ
gown by Oscar de la Renta, jewelry by Tacori

I was mostly confused by her cape and fluffy wings, but Zoë was another one that won me over with the contrast between the front and back of their lewks.

That shit is downright regal.

HALLE BERRY
gown by Versace, jewelry by Swarovski, shoes by Jimmy Choo

I don’t love the front, but the detailing on that skirt is more than enough for me. And the back is predictably gorgeous:

This one’s still got it.

RILEY KEOUGH
gown by Louis Vuitton, jewelry by Repossi

Okay, it could be more on theme, but when 4 out of every 5 attendees ignore the theme entirely, I’ve got to praise something. And at least this looks like it could be worn to a Met Gala, if not this Met Gala.

ELIZABETH BANKS
gown by Michael Kors, purse by Jimmy Choo

It makes me nauseous when I scroll, which clearly means it’s a success.

THANDIE NEWTON
gown by Monse

Photo: Neilson Barnard/Getty

The dress alone would have made me throw things at my laptop, but somehow, the Carrie Bradshaw-meets-Helena Bonham Carter situation happening on her head actually makes things work.

CASSIE and DIDDY
cape and tuxedo by Rick Owens, shoes by Christian Louboutin

Can we talk about how fucking awesome this outfit is? Even before Diddy decided to crown himself the king of the Met Gala by laying on the goddamn stairs, I was SOLD on this. The exploding pinstripes, the proportions, all fantastic. And then he started posing.

God bless you, Diddy. You are what the Met Gala needs.
