Met Gala 2018: Stars get ready for the big night

Fashion's biggest night out does not come easy.

As expected, Met Gala prep is filled with lasers, high-tech facials, cool sculpting for the body, face masks, eye masks, entire-body masks, intense pedicures and last-minute dress tailoring. What, you thought Hollywood's elite woke up like this?

My first #metgala fitting @monsemaison happened about three weeks ago and there was a bit of a Situation. Somehow when I was measured, I was measured with a waist that was three inches smaller than I actually was. “We were surprised because it was smaller than most models,” said @fernandogarciam1205. WELL I GOT STUCK IN THE DRESS AND THEY HAD TO CUT ME OUT!!! This is me one second before @nicolaswirth and @broken_yasman swooped in and cut me out
