The Met Ball notoriously provides an opportunity for high-profile celebs to go all out, take some risks, and really try to “wow” us with their attire.
The event, which serves as a fundraiser for The Metropolitation Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, brings out all the biggest names and faces in entertainment and fashion. The theme of this year’s event was “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations,” so they knew exactly what to do, right?
Those not invited to dish out the suggested $25,000 for the gala got to marvel at the glamor from our laptops’ livestreams and photo updates, but even the celebrities found it exciting to mingle among the natives, catch up with friends, and forge some new, fabulous connections.
Among the madness, it seems that via Twitter, Jimmy Fallon and Rashida Jones took on some alternate celeb personas.
