You may think you have poured over all of the Met Gala dresses by now, but the frock-athon didn't stop at the top of the steps. Oh no. We've never tried dancing in a satin train and bosom, but we imagine it's no easy feat. So we'll forgive many of the stars for changing out of their white tie get up into something with more room for twerking. Plus why wear one gown when you can wear two?
Sarah Jessica Parker and Beyonce might have stayed in their red carpet show-stoppers for the entire evening (good work ladies), but the likes of Kate Upton and Cara Delevingne made a quick change after dinner. Rihanna swapped one slinky Stella McCartney gown for another slinky Stella McCartney gown, this time opting for a bronze backless number. By backless we mean backless, as it scoops down to flash her bum cleavage. Keep your fingers crossed this isn't the new side boob.
When away from Anna Wintour's steely gaze, several of the stars whipped off the stilettos. Kristen Stewart was the first to put on her beloved Converses (natch), while her BFF Riley Keough wore chunky boots. Cara Delevingne changed into ripped jeans and a biker jacket, while Joan Smalls wore boyfriends and a cropped fluffy knit.
The place to be was the unofficial after party at the top of the Standard Hotel. Hamish Bowles was spinning around in a cape, while Lupita Nyong'o got her Prada fringing moving and Brie Larson did energetic high kicks. Douglas Booth did exactly what we would do if given access to a glitzy Met Ball party. The British actor said to Vogue he was “taking a selfie with Jay Z in the background and sending it to all my friends.” Could you send that image to us too please, Doug?
