Monday night’s fashion prom, otherwise known as the Met Gala (or the Costume Institute Benefit Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, officially), brought out the stars in their best (and worst) costume attire. This year’s theme was “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology,” which basically meant, “Let’s wrap ourselves in shiny clothes reminiscent of aluminum foil.”
