With Comme des Garçons’ renowned Rei Kawakubo as the subject of this year’s Costume Institute exhibit, one would have hoped that the red carpet of the famed Met Gala would have been filled with some of the most provocative ensembles imaginable. After all, there were some rather creative interpretations of Manus x Machina, and for the most part, guests Googled what “white tie” meant ahead of the Charles James fete.

Alas, the fun and experimentation was not meant to be. Most guests wore—oh man, this is such a bummer—the same stuff we always see them in. Here is the biggest, most fashion-forward red carpet in the land, which this year is celebrating one of the most avant-garde designers in fashion history, and celebrities turned up in…regular gowns? Goodness, it was almost as boring as the Oscars.

That being said, there were some bright spots—some guests (such as Katy Perry, Solange, and Claire Danes) truly took the opportunity to heart, and donned conceptual, intriguing, and engaging looks by various designers. Some partygoers (including Michèle Lamy, Anna Cleveland, and Tracee Ellis Ross) even managed to get their hands on some Comme des Garçons. And naturally, we can always count on Rihanna to outshine almost everyone else (with the help, of course, of super-stylist Mel Ottenberg).

Click through the slideshow above to see the 25 best, brightest, and most interesting outfits from this year’s gala. Let’s just pretend that everyone looked as cool as these ladies did.
