On the first Monday of every May, New York's Metropolitan Museum Of Art hosts its annual fundraising gala. Last night, all the A-list celebrities and designers came together for one of the biggest nights in fashion. As it technically represents the opening of Costume Institute's annual show, it also gives us an opportunity to get all googly-eyed over the fashion of some of our favorite musicians.
This year's theme for the Met Gala was "Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art of the In-Between," aka to be avant-garde as hell. And as some of our favorite artists were incredibly on-theme - like Rihanna, Pharrell, and Katy Perry - here's a list of our favorite looks from last night.
Um, YAS, Nicki Minaj. As we all know, Nicki Minaj loves to wear those eye-catching, revealing and always extravagant costumes so to see her rockin' a custom H&M, figure-flaunting geisha-inspired ensemble with classy makeup on that red carpet was like - whoa. She killed it.

So, apparently Frank Ocean wasn't in many photos on the red carpet as sources say he "sprinted down the red carpet." But he looked adorable in his fancy white shirt and red plaid dress socks. Maybe he was late? Maybe he didn't feel avant-garde enough? But, he's winning in our book.
Zendaya wanted to make sure all eyes were on her at the Met Ball and she definitely succeeded with this Dolce & Gabbana gown with the tropical parrot print. And that hair! She SLAYED it.
Lolawolf's Zoe Kravitz showed up on the red carpet looking like a GODDESS in her satin pink-and-black gown and blonde pixie cut. We're loving this girly version of Zoe that we don't get to see very often.
In true Migos fashion, the trio showed up with their stacked jewelry on full-display. But I have to say, the matching all-black suits were the perfect touch to keep them from going way
over the top. They looked clean and sophisticated - it was refreshing.
Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, sure cleans up nicely. He was looking dapper in a classic black pant/white shirt/bow-tie combo but his unique printed suit jacket absolutely made the outfit stand out.
Future was looking sharp AF in his all black, shiny suit with the embroidered beaded skull face on the back of the jacket. And he kept the rest of his look extremely simple, opting for a big bow instead of a tie. Winning.
Compared to J-Lo's previous hip-hugging Met Ball looks, this simple, elegant dreamy blue gown was much different for her. It may not be super creative or fun but it's timeless and classy and Jennifer Lopez looked incredible wearing it. This women only gets better with age.
Not only is this look extremely on-point with the theme, but she accomplished to stun the red carpet in this eye-catching tule and feathered gown. I don't think there was one person at the event who didn't notice this look.
And last but not least, we're just going to leave this photo of Diddy & Cassie here...
