On the first Monday in May, celebrities ascend the steps of the iconic Metropolitan Museum of Art for the annual, invitation-only fundraiser. This year’s Met Gala theme? ‘Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art of the In-Between.’

As always, another star-studded affair means another opportunity to gawk –  and giggle – at the parade of designer garbs adorning our favorite celebs. Here are the looks that had us lusting, and the ones that sadly missed the bar.

Sheer

Success

Despite leaving little to the imagination, Kendall nailed the nearly-nude look.

Unlike Jenner, model bestie, Bella Hadid, opted for a not-so-fab Alexander Wang unitard. Sorry Bella, we would’ve liked a little less cat-woman and a bit more glam.

Avant-garde

Success

No one does wildly over-the-top and bada** like Queen RiRi. This elaborate compilation of fabric may seem like a convoluted art confusion, but on Rihanna, it is simply magnificent.

As for these three ladies, we’ve got a few questions:

1) Nicki, is that Darth Vader around your waist?

2) Madonna, we get you’re all about statements and risqué numbers, but camo? Really?

3) Katy Perry, WTF?

Success

When done right, prints can bring an added flair to femme formal-wear.

Totally confusing and a tad awkward, these stars had their prints all out of wack.

Pops of Color

Success

The competition was fierce, but these ladies brought their own vivacious panache by utilizing a vibrant color palette. It doesn’t always take exaggerated decor and dramatic tailoring to stand out.
