The Met Gala is an annual fundraising event for The Costume Institute at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. In other words, high-flyers and somebodies pay way too much money to get dressed up all fancy to a theme, pout, get papped, drink, pout some more, pretend to eat, drink a little more, take more pictures and go to the afterparty. The women look either sublime or ridiculous, while the guys just all wear the same tuxedo (except if you're Kanye or Zayn). Translation: The frocks cost from as low as thousands of dollars to anything equalling the GDP of Taiwan, and the guys rent their suits from Al's Formal Wear (except if you're Kanye or Zayn).
Yeezy accessorized with laser eyes and sequins, natch.
When celebs try too hard, sometimes they fail miserably and are subsequently ripe for an internet roasting. Here are some of the memes from the Met Gala of celebrities getting their just desserts (not that any of them have ever tasted a dessert).
Jaden and Willow? Or Milli Vanilli?
If you don't remember who Milli Vanilli is, check out one of their big hits below.
Blame it on the Big Willy?
Zayn Malik looks miserable with his RoboCop arms. Perhaps because it's dawned on him he won't be able to itch or unzip all night. I'm sure a million tweens will be more than happy to lend him a helping hand.
