When it was announced that Comme des Garçons founder Rei Kawakubo would be the inspiration for this year’s Met Gala and accompanying exhibition, Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art Of The In-Between, stars like Rihanna, Katy Perry and Gigi Hadid fist-pumped triumphantly, “That sh** is my jam!” while the Olsen twins‘ reaction was more, “So, same thing we wear every Monday?” Pretty much, MK and Ashley. Pretty much.

The Met Gala is a once-a-year chance for celebs to let it all fly, so when they don’t, otherwise gorgeous outfits fall a little flat. Kim K, for example, would’ve stunned at most any other red carpet event in the white off-the-shoulder Vivienne Westwood dress she donned Monday night, but even though it was gorgeous, it didn’t strike the theatrical chord that the evening requires.

Today, we honour those who risked it all for the limelight with, well, the limelight.
