In gilded Schiaparelli we trust. Serving as one of the gala’s co-chairs, Michaela Coel lived up to the title with this nude look. According to Vogue, the actor wore a sheer, gold gown from the Italian brand that dripped with large crystals and mixed stones.

Janelle Monae didn’t need any razor-sharp tailoring or coverings. At the gala’s after-party, the singer kept it stunningly straightforward and wore a glittery black bikini set with pearl straps and Thom Browne wedge heels.

Oh, this look was a *moment.* Early in the Met Gala evening, Rita Ora wore a Prabal Gurung gown that mixed sheer finishes with a gothic-inspired train.

In order to deliver sheer greatness, Kendall Jenner tapped the legend of mesh dresses — Nensi Dojaka — for her after-party look. Her outfit, inspired by a see-through ensemble from Chanel’s Spring 1994 line, featured a sequined bodysuit, pearl straps, and with a bold thong.

Now, this is a glimmering example that a birthday suit is probably the best suit. Lil Nas X appeared on the white carpet in nothing but a metallic thong, silver body paint, and pearl jewels across his face. You know, iconic sh*t.
