OK, So We Can't Stop Talking About These Met Gala Gowns
For the fashion world, the Met Gala red carpet is one of the most important night's of the year. For everyone else? It's an opportunity to obsess over incredible red carpet outfits.
Each year, the Metropolitan Museum of Art holds a fundraising gala for its Costume Institute, and spotlights a different theme or designer. This year, the designer is Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons.
Earlier this year, we tried to predict what we'd see go down the red carpet. Revisit the story, then check back to see if we got any right.

WHO: Ashley Graham
