The red carpet has always been the Met Gala’s main attraction, but as Kylie Jenner’s monster-sized selfie has proven, the real fête of Monday’s Met Ball went down in the bathroom and its where the strongest looks were served.
Following Anna Wintour’s selfie ban in 2015, celebrities have been flocking to the bathrooms to give their best duck face.
Kylie Jenner’s celebrity-saturated selfie featured the likes of Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and her rumored boyfriend A$AP Rocky, Luka Sabbat, Moonlight star Ashton Sanders, Paris Jackson, Lily Aldridge, the ever-reclusive Frank Ocean, Sean “Diddy” Combs, model Slick Woods and Brie Larson—and those are just the celebs lucky enough to make it in the frame.
That’s only the half of it. With plenty of unquestionable evidence provided by all your fave A-listers on Instagram and Snapchat, we have solid proof that the restroom is where the real Met Gala party happens, and nobody is keeping it classy.
In fact, over the course of the night, celebrities documented the bathroom/secret celebrity hangout on Instagram and Snapchat, revealing all your fave stars lounging, mingling, and smoking cigarettes profusely. See more debauchery below.
Here’s another angle of Kylie’s epic selfie, courtesy of her sister Kim Kardashian. It’s pretty much the same crowd, but everyone looks a little more wasted. Perhaps Anna Wintour came with a golden tray of flaming tequila shots in between takes? Unlikely, but it’s plainly obvious that her guests do not plan to abide by the “no selfie” rule anytime soon.
Case in point: Bella Hadid, Lara Stone, Paris Jackson and Ruby Rose decided it was perfectly ok for their obscenely expensive (not to mention delicate) outfits to make contact with the bathroom floor. They all got comfy, sprawled out and shared a smoke. I guess this is what every high-school rager would look like if everyone wore couture.
Rita and Rami Malek realized they should have walked the red carpet together in their respective red ensembles, so they scrambled to bypass Anna Winter to take a cheeky selfie in the bathroom. Again, I suppose if you’re that famous, it’s totally fine to smoke in the bathroom of a grand building that houses some of our civilization’s most precious works of art?
Yup, that’s Dakota Johnson of Fifty Shades of Gray fame smoking up a storm in the bathroom. No wonder Beyoncé didn’t show. If smoking in the bathroom was this year’s Met Gala theme, then everyone would have nailed it.
This Instagram story is yet more evidence proving how ridiculously lit the bathroom at the Met Gala was.
Smoking wasn’t just limited to your Hollywood A-listers. Fashion’s elite bought out the smoking hot steez, too. Here’s Stella McCartney puffing on a cheeky cig, alongside Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli and Prabal Gurung.
Yup, that’s Ashley Graham snapping the painfully cool Adwoa Aboah too distracted by her iPhone to care about the Met Gala, downtown it girl/model Slick Woods waving a cigarette with her mouth and a very polite Jourdan Dunn simply trying to wash her hands.
