The 2018 Met Gala took place in New York City on Monday night and this year the theme was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. While some celebs stuck closely to the theme (slay Rihanna), others viewed it simply as another red carpet (we’re looking at you, Kardashian and Jenner family). Thankfully, many of them shared behind the scenes pics on their social media accounts and revealed what goes into getting Met Gala ready. Hint: it’s snacks, make-up, and the best designers in the world.
Check out which celebs shared their prep for the 2018 Met Gala on social media.
