Arguably one of the fashion highlights of the year in Celebville, The 2016 MET Gala took place in the US last night. Each year the themes challenge celebs to try and be a little more daring in their style. This year the theme was fashion meets technology and most of those who attended hit the nail on the head. Here are the looks that stood out for us.
Which is your favourite?
1.Willow and Jaden Smith
The siblings rocked the red carpet in black and white ensembles that were simple yet classic.
2. Gugu Mbatha-Raw
The actress took a more simple route with a white Gabriela Hearst gown and she still stunned.

3. Amandla Stenberg
We love Amanda’s 70s inspired futuristic look.
The actress looks amazing in this Michael Kors gown! Not sure about that hair but that dress saves the day.

5. Freida Pinto
Freido opts for a cleaner, sophisticated look in this Tory Burch dress. She looks great, but she could’ve dressed up a bit more for the MET.
The supermodel shows off that banging body of hers in this Cavalli Couture gown.
Gorgeous @iamnaomicampbell in a #CavalliCouture by @peter_dundas dress with crop top and high waisted train skirt in black silk lace allover embroidered with micro-beads and crystals. #MetGala #MetGala2016 #MetBall #ManusxMachina #PeterDundas #NaomiCampbell #CavalliCats #CavalliGirl #CavalliCrew

7. Nicki Minaj
Nicki went all belt crazy last night and we’re not convinced it worked. It’s just a bit all over the place for us.

We know a few people have had their issues with this look but it was one of our favourite looks of the night. Queen Bey looks gorgeous in Givenchy.

9. Lupita Nyong’o
Lupita always stuns in green and this year is no different. That dress is everything! The hair is a little out there but it is the MET Gala after all.
The shimmering train on @lupitanyongo’s custom @calvinklein dress. “I approve of the fact that #Lupita did metallic, but avoided the silver cliche trap,” says @nytimes fashion critic Vanessa Friedman. Photo by @damonwinter, who’s on the #redcarpet at the #MetGala. #manusxmachina #metgala2016

We usually adore everything about Solange‘s adventurous style but this year we’re not so sure. The dress and that hair is pretty but those leggings and those sandals… we don’t know.
? That was fun! Now I’m in a bomb ass sweatsuit. I know I drove you crazy @shionat with all of my fifty eleven screenshots. You are seriously amazing, even when you hate my shoe choices. Thank you @nikkinelms for giving me that shareefa bang that one time so I could know how much of an artist you are. Thank you @mmiiggss for bringing Christmas Tree Tinsel and trusting my face lol And thank you @pipbuzzz for giving me the goods. #Prom2016
11. Kim and Kanye
The couple looked great in their metallic Balmain outfits although this was a bit predictable for Kim.

12. FKA Twigs
Another adventurous fashionista who disappointed this year was FKA Twigs. That beige dress was a bit of a snooze, even with the interesting back body art.

13. Kerry Washington
Kerry showed off her baby bump for the first time at the MET Gala red carpet in a beautiful Marc Jacobs gown. That hair is a bit much though!

14. Jennifer Hudson
J Hud looks ravishing in this white H&M dress but she didn’t really follow the theme now did she?
Love, love, love Ciara’s custom H&M dress and silver hair. Her look works with the theme, is sexy and still very her.

16. Jourdan Dunn
Another one of our Best Dressed celebs of the night was Jourdan in this metallic Balmain gown. Stunning!
