We expected a lot of outlandish tech-themed looks on tonight’s Met Gala red carpet, but the one thing we didn’t anticipate? Diane von Furstenberg attending with a head full of butterflies.

The fashion designer posted a series of behind-the-scenes snaps to her Instagram account in preparation for the Met’s biggest night that show off her exotic choice of accessories for the big night. DVF teased out her usual coif to a voluminous faux afro, adorning it with 10 or so technicolor butterflies.

The look isn’t exactly Manus x Machina (unless the butterflies are mechanized and start flapping their wings as she walks down the red carpet, in which case we’ll bite our tongues), but nonetheless it’s undoubtedly a major style statement that just might land her the award for craziest headpiece of the night. Until Sarah Jessica Parker shows up, of course.

What do you think of DVF’s butterfly beauty look? Sound off below!
