Every Met Gala Gown You Can't Miss from 2017's Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons Red Carpet
The 2017 Met Gala
For this year's (admittedly tricky) Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala theme, Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons, stars took every possible approach to the biggest red carpet of the year, from barely there (hi Kendall Jenner) to fully on-message (that would be Rihanna) and somewhere in between (like Blake Lively). Read on to see the best, boldest, most exciting and all-out wackiest dresses from the Fashion Prom.
