This Is How Celebs Got Ready For The 2016 Met Gala

It involves lots of fittings and Snapchat


There’s no denying that the annual Met Gala — which was held yesterday at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art — is one of the biggest, fanciest fashion and art events in the world.

And as with any event shrouded in glitz and glamour, there’s always this air of mystery as to how celebrities prep for their appearance. We’ve learnt from our local Star Awards’ stylists that getting the clothes for celebs alone take weeks — so how about the stars themselves? How do they get ready in the days, hours and minutes before the big red carpet walk?

Thanks to the folks at Michael Kors, we’ve got to see — and show you — the process first-hand. Click through the gallery above to follow international supermodel Ming Xi around as she gets dressed, preened and prepped for the Met Gala 2016.
