The Minute When Met Gala Photos Were Posted, Twitter Got To Roasting
The Met Gala, an annual ball held in New York City, is essentially prom for the most famous people in the world. Actors, musicians, politicians, socialites and other celebs show up dressed in their finest threads to raise money for charity. Every year, the Met Gala has a theme, which leads people to show up wearing some eye-catching, flamboyant outfits. Last year, the theme was “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology,” which led to people sporting metallic fabric and android-like metallic limbs. This year, the Met Gala switched things up a little, choosing avant garde designer Rei Kawakubo and her fashion label Comme des Garçons its inspiration. Rihanna was universally lauded for killing it this year. Others, however, felt the burn as Twitter roasted them for their choices.
Katy Perry stuck to the night’s theme, but to some, she looked like a bride-to-be.

So did Jennifer Lopez’s dress, which earned her comparisons to Elsa from “Frozen.” That’s not really much of a diss, though.

Pharrell’s wife, Helen Lasichanh, definitely followed the theme, but it still didn’t stop people from firing shots at her.
