The stars hit the red carpet last night at the 2017 Met Gala and did not disappoint.

This year’s theme for the annual gala was “Rei Kawakubo/ Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between.” Seventy-four year old Reg Kawakubo is a Japanese designer. She founded Comme des Garçons in 1969. This makes her the second living designer to be honored with a solo MET Gala. Reg Kawakubo regularly works with names for the every day person, like Speedo and Nike.

The MET Gala is all about high fashion, and these were some of our noteworthy looks!
