Insta Creep: 19 Of The Best Behind-The-Scenes Instagrams From Last Night’s Met Gala

What all the celebs are up to on social, from A to Z listers.

In our gossip column, we indulge our nosiest desires and delve deep into what the celebs (and ‘celebs’) are doing on social media. Who’s tweeting and deleting? Who’s shady faving? Let’s find out.

Firstly, we must acknowledge Rihanna as the Pope/Child of Prague

The queen of the theme AGAIN. It’s the Rihanna Gala, really.

Sarah Jessica Parker and Andy Cohen grabbed her for a photo

Everyone wanted a selfie with Rihanna. Everyone.

Laura Dern also made sure she got a selfie with Rihanna

We would watch a Dern/Fenty movie. C’mon Hollywood.

Katy Perry had to come to the party standing up in the back of a convertible to protect her massive angel wings

You may as well go all out.

Here’s proof that not even famous people are very good at group selfies

Everyone’s looking the wrong way! Kim looks bored! Kendall’s having a nap! Appreciate SZA’s surfer pose, though.

SZA and Kim K almost had a joint wardrobe malfunction

Kim’s sequinned dress got stuck on SZA’s tulle, and while she documented this fact on her Insta Story, she didn’t say how they resolved it. Hopefully there are no chunks of Versace on the Met floor this morning.

Ariana Grande had a little rest on the red carpet

Very understandable.

Madonna gave us a glimpse of her performance of Like A Prayer on the museum steps

Is it even a Catholic-themed Met Gala if Madonna isn’t doing something dressed as Joan of Arc? No.

Donald Glover hugged Mary J Blige and it looked like the nicest hug ever

Donald is in RAPTURES.

Nicki Minaj and Cardi B had a chinwag, putting rumours of a feud to bed

Look at Jeremy Scott in the background there, like: “Yes, my children. Talk. Collaborate. I love you both so much.”

Lily Collins took a photo in the bath

Is there any girl in the world who hasn’t taken a tipsy bath photo? Answers on a postcard please.

Kim posed with her mummified twin

‘Sarcophagus chic’ is a key trend for summer 2018.

The moggles had to help each other with their trains

Doutzen Kroes gave Joan Smalls a dig out. Nice of her.

Actually we take back what we said about celebs not being good at group photos. This is PERFECT

Met squad.

A post shared by Lena Waithe (@lenawaithe) on

Let’s see, we’ve got Janelle Monae, Get Out’s Daniel Kaluuya, Tessa Thompson from Thor: Ragnarok, Michael B Jordan, Master of None actress/writer Lena Waithe, John Boyega from Star Wars, Broadway legend Cynthia Erivo, and Black Panther’s Chadwick Boseman and Leticia Wright. Quite the squad.

And this is pretty good too, TBH

Pharrell, his wife, Naomi Watts, Ariana Grande, and Salma Hayek. Interesting grouping!

Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner took a pre-ball pic in a random corner of their hotel room

A post shared by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on

Lovely curtains, to be fair.

Please look at Frances McDormand, though

Always having the most fun and giving the least amount of f**ks. Go on Franny Mc.

Cindy Crawford reminded us that she’s an unbelievable ride

And Rihanna and Katy reminded us that they used to be bezzies

God, remember when they used to sit beside each other at awards shows and throw shade at people? BRING IT BACK.

And that’s the Met Gala over for another year. Next year’s theme should just be ‘Rihanna’. Thank us later, Anna Wintour.


Have your say
