Met Ball Gala 2014: Behind the scenes

Thanks to the joys of social media, we managed to catch a glimpse of what it is like getting ready for one of the year's most glamorous events; the Met gala.

And just like the average pre-Friday night out gathering it was comforting to see the celebs are just like us (only with thousand pound dresses and A-list arm candy).

New BFFs Karlie Kloss and Taylor Swift posted up snaps of them putting on their slap (Taylor went for red, Karlie, a lovely nude shade), and Alex Chung seemed to be very excited about getting dolled up for the night.

Jourdan Dunn, Zooey Deschanel, and Lena Dunham all took photos of themselves on the way to the gala, and we loved that Lena stuffed her bag full of snacks (a girl after our own hearts).

Later in the evening, Cara Delevingne and Lily Allen messed around in the loos, Lupita Nyong'o, Solange and Beyonce formed the ultimate girl group and Kim Kardashian made Kanye West look like the most uncomfortable man alive (we don't think he likes taking selfies).

But perhaps the ultimate Met Gala behind-the-scenes picture should go to Madonna, who, after not being allowed to wear a very revealing outfit to the event, decided to boycott and stay at home. That didn't stop her from posting said banned outfit up on Instagram.

Take a look at that, and more behind-the-scenes pictures below.
