Abbey Lee Kershaw

Abbey Lee Kerkshaw caused quite a stir when she staged a brief but revealing guerrilla political campaign at a Met Gala afterparty, and, lucky for us, beauty blog Into The Gloss was on hand to snap a quick pic of the big reveal. In the photo, the Australian model lifts up her custom Rag & Bone silver slip dress to showcase a pair of tiny black underwear and the message “GUN CONTROL” scrawled in black ink across her torso.

Madonna

Madge heated up the Met Gala red carpet in a tartan-studded jacket by Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy Haute Couture and ripped fishnet stockings. In this Instagram, taken by the designer himself, the singer poses in front of one of the museum’s armor displays. “Best night of my life,” Tisci wrote in the caption.

Rooney Mara and Prabal Gurung

In this photo, Nepalese-American designer Prabal Gurung strikes a pose with actress (and Givenchy favorite) Rooney Mara. Gurung quelled doubts that Mara is as hard-faced as her characters onscreen in the caption:  “She is actually quite funny and has a great sense of humor,” the designer wrote.

Kanye West

No stranger to high fashion, Kanye West took the stage—er, sanctuary—in the MET’s Temple of Dendur to perform at the gala wearing a sparkly Givenchy top. Model Coco Rocha posted a photo of the artist performing, noting West said he’s “only singing new stuff.”

Frank Ocean and Sky Ferreira

In what is arguably the best photo of the evening (so good, in fact, that it’s captionless), musicians Frank Ocean and Sky Ferreira don ski masks à la Spring Breakers mid-Met Gala. Ocean opted for a pink unicorn ski mask from the Opening Ceremony x Spring Breakers collection.
