Glamorous they ain’t, but bathrooms and toilets were the hub of the action at this year’s Met Gala, with A-listers including Stella McCartney, Kim Kardashian, Alexa Chung and Lily Collins sharing their well-lit selfies with the world before, during and after the major fashion bonanza.
This year’s theme, in honour of Commes des Garçons’ avant-garde designer Rei Kawakubo, also gave us stars eager to show off their sharp new bobs, extreme smoky eyes and extravagant feather details. PDA came courtesy of loved-up Gisele and Tom Brady, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez – and a sleepy Amy Schumer and understanding Madonna.

Not the world's greatest photo but geez, the highlight of my evening was hanging with these ladies. Listen- these big events are an anxiety fest for some of us. I was flying solo and knew not a soul but they kindly took me under their wing. What a pair of inspiring, grounded, kind women they both are. I felt lucky to be in their company. ?
