The stars were out in force for the Met Gala last night, whose theme Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons honoured the iconic designer in the best way.

'Rei Kawakubo is one of the most important and influential designers of the past forty years,' the Costume Institute’s curator Andrew Bolton told Vogue.

'By inviting us to rethink fashion as a site of constant creation, recreation, and hybridity, she has defined the aesthetics of our time.'

Unlike most years, many celebrities did not focus their looks on the theme, so there was a major mix of ensembles on the night.

The Met Gala is one of the biggest fashion events of the year.

It sees some pretty wild looks from celebs, yet there are always a few gems thrown in among the weird and wonderful.

But it seems 2017 is going to see a more… whacky theme. As rumours from the fashion industry are suggesting, the subject of next year's gala is Rei Kawakubo.

What or who is that, you ask? Rei is the reclusive designer behind a Japanese label called Comme Des Garcons. She's famed for contemporary fashion and often makes radical designs that play with structure, proportions and bold prints.

Can you image what some of the celebs will be dressed like?!



While the Academy Awards looks like a fairly stuffy affair  – except for Ellen's selfie, natch – the Met Gala looks like a chance for Hollywood's biggest and brightest to have a little fun with fashion, but apparently it's not all it's cracked up to be.

Speaking on the Howard Stern Show yesterday, Amy Schumer described the event, and frankly we don't think we're that jealous of Gigi, Karlie or Zayn anymore.

Sounding like a nightmare from start to finish, the Trainwreck star revealed that the event felt like a 'punishment.

"I figured I should have been grateful I was invited or something but it felt like a punishment. It’s not me and I don’t like it," she admitted.

“I got to meet Beyoncé and she was like, ‘Is this your first Met Gala?' And I was like, ‘It’s my last’" Amy recalled.

Pouring scorn on the New York-based event and its theme, Amy ranted: "We’re dressed up like a bunch of f***ing a***holes."

"I have no interest in fashion," Amy explained. "I like the idea of coming up with a way to dress that's more comfortable, that sounds good to me, other than that I don’t care."

And if she wasn't a fan of the costumes, she was even less impressed by the guests wearing them.

Giving an insight into the Gala's dynamic, Amy continued: "It’s all so fake, It’s people doing an impression of having a conversation … I don’t like the farce."

Christ, it sounds more harrowing than the worst night out.


We genuinely thought that wedding bells were in the offing for one of our all-time favourite couples.

Sadly, however, news has now spread from the US that Taylor Swift, 26, and Calvin Harris, 31, are no more. 

It is being reported that in the aftermath the couple, who dated for 15 months, hope to remain firmly on friendly terms.

A source told People magazine: "There was no drama. Things just don't work out sometimes."

Previously thought to be one of celebrity's most solid pairings, the duo had become a stable of glamorous red-carpet events during the latter stages of their union. 

Significantly, however, Tay-Tay attended the Met Gala alone a month ago in New York.

Last year Ms Swift and her Scottish DJ beau were ranked by Forbes as the music industry's highest-paid celebrity couple, with earnings of more than €130million.


We hail Emma Watson here at Shemazing! HQ for many reasons, but one reason is her fashion choices.

She's constantly thinking outside-of-the-box when it comes to her style statements, and this year's Met Gala look was no different.

The actress worked the red carpet in a Calvin Klein and Eco Age dress that stood out from the crowds with its unique design of a bustier, trousers and a long dress tail.

But one thing that really makes it different is that it was made from… RECYCLED PLASTIC BOTTLES.

Yep, plastic bottles.

"Plastic is one of the biggest pollutants on the planet," Emma wrote in a Facebook post explaining her look. "Being able to repurpose this waste and incorporate it into my gown for the ‪#‎MetGala‬ proves the power that creativity, technology and fashion can have by working together."

"Each and every part of this beautiful gown has been produced with sustainability in mind," she explained. "The zippers on the gown are made from recycled materials and the inner bustier has been crafted from organic cotton … The organic silk used in the lining of my gown is certified to a standard that guarantees the highest environmental and social standards throughout production.

"It is my intention to repurpose elements of the gown for future use. The trousers can be worn on their own, as can the bustier, and the train can be used for a future red carpet look."

What a woman!


The stars all killed it on the red carpet last night – and not just in the fashion stakes.

Make-up took on a whole new meaning at the Met Gala, with shimmering eyes and structured cheekbones taking to the main stage.

All those lavish costumes must take quite some time to perfect, as the theme for next year's Met Gala has already been announced.

The Metropolitan Museum Of Art confirmed last night that the 2016 red carpet event will have a futuristic theme, with the official title of Manus X Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology.

The gala, due to take place on May 2 on next year, will kick off a three-month long exhibition under the same theme at New York's Costume Institute.

Anna Wintour will act as official chair for the event – as she has done since 1995 – and will work with Vogue staffers to oversee the benefit committee and 650-strong guest list of stars and philanthropists.

Honorary co-chairs this year include Taylor Swift and Idris Elba, though we can hardly imagine they'll be sweating too much over seating charts and flower arrangements.

Last year's theme, China: Through The Looking Glass, brought costumes back in time as it examined China's influence on Western fashion through the centuries. 

Rihanna certainly had the most memorable look on the night, making the cover of Vogue's special Met Gala edition in her yellow Guo Pei fur-trimmed gown.

Beyoncé also showed off her slimmed-down figure in an incredible sheer Givenchy gown – with rumours she intentionally arrived on the red carpet last to ensure the cameras got a good look.

As for Kim Kardashian, she was equally stunning in a skintight Roberto Cavalli fishtail dress, accompanied by Kanye in a… velvet suit.

Despite her stunning look, Kim was controversially snubbed by Anna Wintour, not even making the list of names on Vogue's special cover.

We cannot WAIT to see next year's red carpet looks.



You know those horrible nights where everything is going well until you see your ex? Well imagine that, but at the Met Gala rather than your local nightclub. 

No matter how famous and desired Justin Bieber may be, he is still the last person Selena Gomez wants to bump into on a night out.

Vanessa Hudgens appeared on Watch What Happens Live yesterday and was asked whether or not she helped her bestie Selena avoid Justin at the Met Gala. 

"Getting spicy now are we? "Um… I mean, not really," she replied

She then added: "She's one of my best friends and you just want to have your girlfriends’ backs, so that's what I did. We didn't really try to avoid him or anything. I mean, no one really wants to see your ex boyfriend."

Well, we don't want to Vanessa, but your ex boyfriend is Zac Efron so we don't know if the whole not wanting to see him thing really applies here…

While Selena tried to avoid the singer, Justin had different ideas.

He had previously said: "Selena looked gorgeous at the Met Ball!"

Ah here, enough of the mind games Justin, she just wanted to enjoy her vodka and blackcurrant with famous friends.

Sure don't we all.



All eyes were on Beyoncé and Jay-Z as they arrived fashionably late to this year’s Met Gala, and while last-minute hair and outfit changes have been blamed for their tardiness, fresh rumours have suggested it was something else entirely.

Apparently, last year’s infamous elevator fight was playing on the stars’ minds as they set off for the event, with the tension resulting in an alleged ‘bust-up’ on the way to the celebrity bash.

A source told Closer magazine: “Beyoncé and Jay got into a bust-up on the way there. They were both on edge after last year and Beyoncé told Jay he wasn’t allowed to leave her side – he then told her he didn’t want to feel on a leash.”

“It led to some strong words. They put on smiles for the camera but there was tension behind the scenes,” the source added.

If the report is indeed true, it just sounds like a normal couple tiff to us. After all, who could blame Bey and Jay for being a little nervous after the fallout from the footage of Solange attacking the rap mogul?

One thing’s for sure – they certainly stole the show and proved their power couple status on the night.



After hanging out at the Met Gala on Monday, it appears that Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber have formed an unlikely friendship.

After Justin posted a selfie of the pair to Instagram along with the caption: "Me and the queen" she posted the same selfie to her Instagram along with the caption: "He really has a sweetness to him. He grew up in front of the whole world. I reminded him to not get bothered. Because at the end of the day. He's the boss."

"And life isn't always Roses. Lots of thorns," she concluded. 

How sweet of Lady Gaga to offer the 21-year-old life advice.

We hope Justin is set to change his ways as he recently told Hero magazine: "I hope people felt the sincerity in my apologies. There are a lot of things that have happened in the last couple years that I'm not very proud of, and I feel a responsibility to my fans and to the public who believe in me to make it right. I hope everyone believed it—because it was honest."

Well Justin, you definitely have Gaga's support.




Rihanna was turning heads at the 2015 Met Gala earlier this week.

Her outfit choice was very attention grabbing as she showed up in a massive yellow robe. 

During an interview with Vogue's André Leon Talley on the red carpet, she revealed that the robe took YEARS to make and it was all stitched together by one woman—designer Guo Pei.

"It's a miracle how it happened actually, I saw this beautiful beast on the Internet. I was looking through, you know, researching Chinese couture…It's handmade by one Chinese woman. It took two years to make this," she said. 

We bet RiRi was panicking about the possibility of somebody standing on it, we would too!

While the singer always looks gorgoeus, it didn't stop people making jokes about the dress. Many memes were created comparing it to things such as pizza and an omelette.

Luckily she was able to laugh at herself and joined in on the fun on her Instagram account.

We had no idea about the feud between Rihanna and Rita Ora. 

Rihanna held a Met Gala after party at Up & Down nightclub in New York City on Monday following the Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

For some reason, the singer refused to give Rita Ora an invitation to the event, which was attended by celebrities such as Kylie Jenner and Justin Bieber.

A source told the Sun: "She has a real issue with Rita and this was her chance for revenge." 

"She made it clear when organising her party that Rita was not to gatecrash under any circumstances," they added.

The 27-year-old reportedly spent a lot of the night hanging out with Cara Delevingne, Rita's ex best friend which caused an awkward atmosphere between the 24-year-old and the model. 

A source said: "It was very icy between Rita and Cara. They spent the night trying to ignore each other. Rita decided to hang out with Miley Cyrus instead. She was never going to attend Rihanna's party because she'd made plans to go to another bash."

Rita ended up at Lady Gaga's after party at the Diamond Horseshoe nightclub instead. 

Hmmm, we wonder what drama has previously gone on there…
