21 Looks From This Year's Met Gala You Need To See

Light-up dresses, long trains, and colorful suits.

Last Night, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City held its annual Costume Institute Benefit, better known as the Met Gala. The benefit is held to raise money for the museum's fashion department, which funds itself. It's best known for the celebrities who attend and the fashion-forward styles they wear. 

The party is held to open the Costume Institute's annual fashion exhibit. This year, that exhibit was Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology. Celebrities tend to try to dress in an outfit under the theme of the exhibit, so this year we saw everything from light-up dresses to Tamagotchis as accessories.
