No, there were no awards given out to celebs Monday night at the Met Gala in New York, but that didn’t stop the Internet from declaring winners and losers.
Each year the annual Met Gala generates much hype in the form of internet gossip, best-dressed lists and, usually, memes.
Held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York city, the theme for 2016 was Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology. This meant futuristic, technology-inspired designs modelled by a wealth of high-profile singers, models and actors.
The theme was more evident in some outfits than others, with Zayn Malik sporting bionic arms over his Versace suit and Katy Perry turning up with a 90s Tamagotchi around her neck. Other red carpet arrivals included Beyonce, Kim Kardashian-West and Kanye West, Cindy Crawford and Idris Elba.
