The Best #MetGala Instagrams From Last Night

ICYMI: Have a look at our Met Gala fashion gallery.

Last year Reese Witherspoon played a behind-the-scenes blinder with that other, more adorable, elevator video, in which she asked Cara Delevingne how to pronounce her name. This year she just showed her fellow actress and co-star Sofia Vergara a lot of love. We love sleepy looking Reese.

I think she loves me as much as I love her – @sofiavergara

Get a load of Solange Knowles? dress.

When @cartier is your date, and Giles is your dress.

Also, that ponytail is sleek as heck.

While we didn’t exactly love Sarah Jessica Parker’s outfit, she did give us some good Insta last night. What’s in the box?

Let the games begin. X, Sj #ChinaThroughTheLookingGlass

So Philip Treacy is responsible for the hat! #BuyIrish

Turns out SJP designed the dress with H&M. Might we be sensing a future collaboration?

Hamish Bowles is a celebrated fashion journalist, and his date was Fifty Shades of Grey actress Dakota Johnson. Here’s a close-up of her cute handbag.

Pati Dubroff is one of our favourite MUAs to follow on Instagram. She did Dakota Johnson’s face last night and offered us a glimpse at the kit she used.

And then gave us a filter-free and unretouched close up of her handiwork.

Marc Jacobs got a photo with Kim, Kanye and Cher. That is what Americans call a home run. Do we have home runs in rounders?

And one more before leaving…. Off to sleep!

Burberry dressed a few stars for the night including Jourdan Dunn and singer James Bay. James didn’t get a haircut because that’s where his secular church choir vibe’s strength lies. Like Samson in the Bible.

John Legend is a Great Life Partner because he understands Chrissy Teigen spent a lot of time on making her hair look that fab, and that a photo is necessary.

MetBall ready

Rihanna shared this lovely illustration. When are we getting a Rihanna Barbie doll?

Is Beyonc? in her first year of college and living away from home for the first time? Because, if so, then this pose is textbook.

Katy Perry, Madonna and Lady Gaga all together in one picture. This needs to be an album cover.
