The 2016 Met Gala: Fashion Recap

The dress code at the Met Ball red carpet this year was “tech white tie”. The tech bit was a nod to the Fashion in an Age of Technology exhibition at the annual Costume Institute, for which the party is definitely not on the inside but on the outside as celebs rock the red carpet in some of fashions most avant-garde themed looks. The star-studded red carpet event broadcasted some of fashions best pieces of innovative and modern work from robotic sleeves to even a glow in the dark dress. You would think with a theme as broad, and as expansive as “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology” this would have designers stumped trying to figure out designs both innovative yet Haute Couture worthy to grace the legendary ball red carpet, but from the looks of last nights event that was definitely not a problem. Social media was on frenzy during last night’s event with tons of posts both praising and bashing last night’s fashion. Heres a brief run down on some of the best looks of the night!
