Best Behind-the-Scenes Instagram Shots From the Met Gala

A photo posted by @karliekloss on

The Met Gala is one of the most exclusive events in the world of fashion, but that doesn’t mean we don’t get a front row seat to all the star-studded antics. Some of our favorite designers, models and actresses spent their night posting their favorite selfies to Instagram offering us an inside look at Anna Wintour’s annual bash. Last night’s theme, Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology gave celebs the perfect excuse to dress in some of the most robotic outfits we’ve ever seen, but that didn’t stop them from tearing it up on the dance floor. Some of our favorite snaps from last night include Claire Danes’ light-up Cinderella gown by Zac Posen, Kerry Washington’s quiet muses in the Met exhibit and Karlie Kloss’ brilliant idea to chop her gown in half to transform it into an after-party dress. Yikes.
