Met Gala 2018: Who Were Stars Among Stars?

From Chadwick Boseman’s all-white papal-level look to Jaden Smith wearing Louis Vuitton, the ‘A-List’ showed out at the 2018 Met Gala (formerly known as the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala). Migos wore harmonizing Greek-key-and-rococo Versace jackets, while Luka Sabbat rocked a not so basic H&M fit. All celebrities stuck to the ‘Sunday’s Best’ dress code, which paid homage to the Gala’s “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” exhibit that’ll debut on Thursday. This event also celebrates the fundraiser for the Costume Institutes annual operating budget, ensuring fashion and art are everlasting for future eras.

There were a ton of original pieces, some were a hit, some were a complete blunder. Below, we will rank the top five men’s looks, women’s looks as well as our top three couple collaborations.
