There’s a reason we refer to the Met Gala as the Oscars of fashion. With its go-big-or-go-home mentality, the event hosts the biggest celebrities, designers, and influencers who pull out all the sartorial stops. Remember Rihanna last year? Well, the 2016 Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala served up ensembles that were just as inspiring. This year’s theme, “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology,” explores the relationship between handmade and machine-produced fashion and lent itself to a dress code of innovative and futuristic looks. And that’s exactly what happened on the red carpet from our favourite celebrities, designers, models, and influencers. If all of this talk of show-stopping dresses has made you want to up your formal frock game, we got you!
