Met Gala 2017: Wildest looks of the night

Monday night's Met Gala was quite eventful, to say the least. Each year, our favorite stars, fashion moguls and models make their way down the red carpet in the most jaw-dropping and unconventional outfits out there. Whether or not these costumes actually flow with the theme is a different story, but this year's Comme des Garçons motif really brought out some eccentricities.

Undoubtedly, Rihanna 's look was one of the most talked about of the night. Dressed in a piece from designer Rei Kawakubo herself, the pop star not just emulated the theme -- she was the theme. An "architectural wonder", as Vogue called it, RiRi perfectly combined structure and beauty.

Another buzzed about look from the night was Katy Perry's all red outfit. The over-the-top red veil, headpiece and dress designed by John Galliano for Maison Margiela drew a lot of criticism online. Perry was one of the co-chairs of the event, so it was expected that the already eccentric star would go all out for this year's theme. But we were not expecting this.

Celine Dion, Rachel Evan Wood and Broadway favorite Cynthia Erivo, along with Caroline Kennedy, showed us that it was the night for fashion.
