Kylie Jenner shares star-studded selfie from Met Gala

"I never thought a post could mean so much to me".

And here is what Kim Kardashian West wore to this event. "This time around I wanted it to be a little more wearable", she said on the phone from Los Angeles.

Music mogul Diddy, meanwhile, laid down on the carpet to watch girlfriend Cassie pose in a black gown with a huge, spikey train she wore with large, glittery ear cuffs. Between the 'do and her sharply dark-lined eyes and a dot of blue eyeshadow, this look fully embraces the Comme des Garçons vibe.

Though she's not a household name, Kamali is the design legend behind Farrah Fawcett's famous swimsuit, the "sleeping bag" coat (see above), and the high-heeled sneaker. Red ruled on the tan carpet - model Doutzen Kroes has been quietly shedding her sleek supermodel look in recent months, and showed there's more to her style by making a hard off-the-shoulder Brock Collection gown, undone hair and make-up look effortlessly elegant.

Our favourite celebrities to shoot at the Met Gala have to be Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Sarah Jessica Parker. Sister Kendall Jenner stunned in a revealing black look covered in 85,000 hand-painted crystals from La Perla Creative Director Julia Haart.

On Monday Rihanna owned the red carpet in a dress by Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garcons fame, now the subject of the Costume Institute's first monographic show on a living designer since Yves Saint Laurent in 1983.

In 2015, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour banned social media of any kind from the event (the rule now applies to selfies only) and refused to say why. Tickets cost about $30,000 and the money goes to the museum's fashion unit, the Costume Institute.

Click through to some of our favorite looks from the night, including Priyanka Chopra's Ralph Lauren trench coat gown; stunning suits on Cara Delevigne and Aymeline Valade; Rita Ora's over-the-top deconstructed gown from Marchesa; Claire Danes' ravaged Monse top; and Maggie Gyllenhaal's embellished tunic and trousers from Marni.

Rihanna never fails to stay on theme and look wonderful year after year.

And Bella Hadid had us scratching our heads over her Alexander Wang one piece ... girl looks a ninja on that damn carpet.

Model and reality star Kendall Jenner wore a dress that left virtually nothing to the imagination, leaving large swaths of her nearly completely naked. They have been shooting the Met Gala for over 15 years and swear it gets better every year. Zendaya, was just Zendaya, her hair down and red parrots adorning a full, off-the-shoulder ball gown in gold by Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda. "It's great to be here".
