Last night the highly anticipated annual Met Gala took place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
Year after year, this event brings out A-list celebrities, models, and designers to help raise money for the museum’s costume fund. This year’s gala was entitled, “Rei Kwaakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art of The In-Between”.
The over the top trains turned out to be a very big trend for the ladies last night. Janelle Monae, Zendaya, and Nicki Minaj all rocked dresses with beautiful jaw dropping trains.

Typically daring fashionistas like Rihanna and Traci Ellis Ross went against the grain of the dramatic dress this year and opted for short, structured dresses.

And although this is one of the biggest and most prestigious nights in fashion, it wouldn’t be complete without a bathroom selfie.
