So, it was the Met Gala last night. The Met Gala is one of those events that is so upstaged by famous people posing for pictures, its actual purpose becomes irrelevant.
Technically, the Meta Gala, also known as the Met Ball (according to my friend Trevor J. Wikipedia), is a fundraising benefit for the Met's Costume Institute.
This year, the theme was “China: Through The Looking Glass,” and that gave everyone the rare opportunity to wear racist clothes with some impunity.
Apparently, Sarah Jessica Parker's understanding of Chinese culture starts and ends with the movie "Mulan."
But, the big meme-splosion came from this pool/tarp-sized gown of mass destruction Rihanna dragged around.
Most of the meme-ing was, of course, egg-themed.

She also looked like she hunted and skinned this large yellow bird that is native to New York.

She also looked like Zeus asked her to hold one of his condoms.
