As well as providing us with abundant fall inspo this week, celebrities proved they’re just like everyone else—in the sense that they, too, struggle with dress codes. Naturally, we’re talking about the Met Gala. Stars from all over the world landed in New York City for the annual event, with this year’s theme centered on “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.” Not all attendees missed the mark—Lewis Hamilton and Regina King understood the assignment pulling their looks from American designers, while Billie Eilish’s billowy Oscar De La Renta gown went the referential route, nodding to Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe. Whether they stayed on-theme or simply went to the beat of their own drum, one thing was clear from all the Met Gala looks: extravagence is back. From Olivia Rodrigo’s feather and lace catsuit to Kendall Jenner’s diamond-encrusted dress, it’s apparent that true decadence lies in the finer details. Take this knowledge into gala season by calling on textured finery and pairing your outfit with statement jewelry.
Before you do that, though, take a look at the rest of the Best Instagram Looks of the Week—and let us know which ones would have made it on your list.
