The 2016 Met Gala red carpet is underway! With the theme “Manus x Machina”, the night’s looks are sure to be spectacular!
Let’s see what the celebs are wearing, shall we?
Lupita Nyong’o’s hair was literally out of the stratosphere! Her Calvin Klein Collection gown was stunning, but faded into the background.
Zendaya Coleman resembled #blackgirlmagic in 2080 in a one-shoulder embellished Michael Kors Collection gown and a sleek bob. She always gets it right.
We were all in formation waiting for Beyoncé to hit the red carpet! She did so in latex Givenchy: I needed a ponytail or bun here to let the dress completely play centerstage.
I was sure Zoe Kravitz would wear Alexander Wang, but it was a wonderful surprise to see her in a bow-back Valentino dress and a head-turning mask.
Pleats please! Solange Knowles chose a yellow look from David Laport for the night. Lemonade never tasted so sweet!
The Wests have arrived in Balmain! Kim’s futuristic silver gown was resplendent, but I wasn’t too keen on Kanye’s embellished jean jacket and destructed denim…the icy blue contacts were dope, but didn’t do much for his look.
Nicki Minaj’s black sheer Moschino gown was accented by sequin buckled straps and matching opera gloves. I’m on the fence about this one…
I guess Future’s lyrics about being invited to the Met Gala were true! The rapper looked like a bag of money in custom Zegna.
Amandla Stenberg was suited up in a red, retro-inspired Calvin Klein pairing.
Jourdan Dunn was one of the night’s Balmain girls. The French fashion house does luxury like no other!
Blake Lively was pretty in pink, wearing a strapless Burberry gown in a blush hue&dmdash;accented with a floral train. This was way sweeter than anything I’ve seen the heritage brand design!
FKA Twigs and Robert Pattinson were ravishing, with the songstress in Atelier Versace. I can’t wait to see what they were for their wedding!
Kristen Stewart glimmered in a beaded Chanel LBD with a lace-up waistband.
Queen Naomi Campbell continued her reign in an embellished cutout Roberto Cavalli Couture gown.
Katy Perry was bewitching in a black and gold velvet embroidered Prada gown.
Bella Hadid and The Weeknd were the perfect pair, with the supermodel in Givenchy.
Older sister Gigi Hadid and boyfriend Zayn Malik were quite the stylish duo, draped in Tommy Hilfiger and Versace respectively.
Naomie Harris repped one of her favorite brands in a brocade Burberry gown.
Lady Gaga was rocker chic at its finest in Atelier Versace. Leave it to Gaga to drop jaws!
Mommy-to-be Kerry Washington sported a provocative Marc Jacobs gown with a thigh-high slit, sheer opera gloves, and purple curls. Her hottest look to date!
Kardashian-Jenner matriarch Kris Jenner wore the family’s favorite brand: Balmain.
The Smith family was in attendance, with Willow in Chanel and Jaden in Louis Vuitton. I love these two!
Kylie Jenner slipped on a Balmain gown for the occasion: no surprise there! She did in fact look absolutely exquisite—eschewing her hair color proclivities for a chic black bob.
The gold skinny lapels on Michael B. Jordan’s Calvin Klein suit were a nice touch.
Ciara channeled Storm realness with silver tresses and a dazzling beaded H&M gown. Werk CiCi!
I’m usually floored by anything Olivier Rousteing creates, but something about Alessandra Ambrosio’s gown fell flat.
Kendall Jenner looked every bit the model in a sultry cutout Atelier Versace gown. This was marvelous!
Hannah Davis and Derek Jeter were one of the night’s best dressed and most gorgeous couples, with the lady in Zuhair Murad.
Gugu Mbatha-Raw was darling in a white, long-sleeve Gabriela Hearst gown.
Amy Schumer skewed a bit edgier than normal in a red Alexander Wang gown. A sleek ponytail or chignon would’ve completed this look perfectly.
Freida Pinto chose a white Tory Burch gown for the evening. A bit underwhelming, but pretty nonetheless.

Jennifer Hudson brought the glamour in a strapless white H&M gown with a wispy tulle skirt.

Sarah Jessica Parker is one of my favorite women every year. Monse designed a custom suit for her and it was fabulous, though the drama quotient was a little low with this.
Nas showed just how talented those Public School guys are in a tux from the design duo. He’s so handsome!
Carmelo Anthony also chose Public School for the night, while LaLa Anthony was drop-dead gorgeous in Nicolas Jebran.
Rita Ora was a feathered fantasy in silver Vera Wang. One of the night’s best dressed easily!
Aja Naomi King certainly turned a few heads in a delightful, tangerine-hued dress with a plunging neckline and thigh-high front slit. So happy to see her here!
A three-piece navy suit was tailored to perfection on Trevor Noah. There’s absolutely no way that he could be any better looking.
Misty Copeland is always so refined and her strapless Jason Wu dress continued that aesthetic.
Selena Gomez was surprisingly pared-down in a Louis Vuitton leather bustier layered over a printed dress. Lace-up, heeled combat boots anchored her ensemble. This was cool, but didn’t feel particularly red carpet-worthy.
Gala co-chair Idris Elba was swoon-worthy in Tom Ford. Might we also add that Tom Ford designs the looks for James Bond? Clearly, they’re already a sartorial match made in Heaven!
Danai Gurira was a complete knockout in Giambattista Valli.
Doutzen Kroes bared her midriff in a white cutout turtleneck Balmain gown.

Kate Bosworth served up princess chic in Dolce & Gabbana. I live for her style!

Ming Xi’s Michael Kors shirt dress was uplifted with silver sequin embellishment and feather detailing.

Rosie Assoulin dressed Michelle Monaghan for the gala. Cool no?
Fei Fei Sun opted for classic elegance in a white embellished, off-the-shoulder Chanel gown.

It was all about prints for Tavi Gevinson in Coach! This was a bit too casual for my taste…

Another white gown! Tommy Hilfiger designed Uma Thurman’s slit-detailed number. She’s never looked better!
Louis Vuitton might just win for dressing the most “It” girls tonight. Singer Grimes went bold in a colorblock gown from the iconic French fashion house. Didn’t feel elevated enough for the occasion.

Maria Sharapova was the lady in red, draped in an off-the-shoulder gown from Juan Carlos Obando and a single gold earring. Hot!
This theme was totally up Will.i.am’s alley, as he always goes for something daring. He was unrecognizable in a bowler hat with a visor that covered most of his face. But his tux with contrast embroidered sleeves? So dapper!
Nick Jonas was a blue dream in a contrast lapel Topman tux with a sportcoat in a glossy blue shade. He never disappoints.
Kate Upton followed Nick’s lead in a silver one-shoulder gown from Topshop. This was a truly a “wow” moment for me!
Kate Mara’s Paco Rabanne dress was fab, but I needed more in the hair and makeup department from her.

Feather embellishment and a beaded butterfly that Mariah Carey would be proud of uplifted Saoirse Ronan’s white Christopher Kane dress.
