Last night (May 7), the 2018 Met Gala — an annual celebration of the fashion world and its power players — returned to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC for a night that catered to all that’s avant garde. While our guys certainly pulled up looking proper to the event, the ladies took the night for the most extravagant, head-turning looks of the evening.
