35 Best-Dressed Celebrities at the 2017 Met Gala

If there was anyone who embodied the 2017 Met Gala theme, “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between,” it was Rihanna.

The star, known for wearing daring looks at the Met Gala, had on a colorful ensemble by Comme des Garçons that appeared on the label’s fall ’16 runway. In true Rihanna fashion, she completed it with thigh-high, lace-up Dsquared2 red sandals.

Other stars interpreted the theme in their own ways. Lily Aldridge looked futuristic in a white cut-out gown and a pink face covering; she took the sockboot trend straight to the red carpet in Balenciaga’s thigh-high pair. Claire Danes was also on-theme in a dramatic ruffled Monse top and pants.
