A Close Look At The 20 Wildest Gowns From The 2015 Met Gala

2015 Met Gala gowns

New York’s most coveted annual event, the 2015 Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art brings out the best when it comes to fashion. This year the theme was 2015: China: Through the Looking Glass and dresses were crazy, beautiful and daring. Here’s a good look at the wildest – and in some cases weirdest- fashions worn to last night’s 2015 Met Gala by some of the best known celebrities.
