Worst Dressed at the 2015 Met Gala—Solange Knowles, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga …

Did she borrow Lourdes’ clothes? Madonna, 56, steps out in tiny leather shorts as she attends Met Gala afterparty with her similarly-dressed 18-year-old daughter.

There were truly some memorable gowns tonight, but not for the right reasons. Thus Rihanna was a very lucky empress of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala in New York yesterday, when she stole the red carpet in an extraordinary gown by Chinese couturier Guo Pei.

So Madonna wasn’t going attend Met Gala afterparty on Monday evening in anything less than a statement youthful outfit, and one that she knew would certainly raise a few eyebrows.Those lucky enough to make the guest list for New York’s Met Gala spend a lot of time perfecting their best poses to stand out on the celeb-packed red carpet.Her dress featured a bright graffiti print and was topped off with matching long gloves that added that extra hint of sex appeal to her ensemble and even a Moschino spray paint can for a handbag. It seemed that Katy had been taking style inspiration from one such other 50-something opn Monday though, when she and 56-year-old Madonna arrived together in similar creations by Jeremy Scott for . ‘I was thinking about the street, maybe a bit New York, the way hip hop changes streetwear and renders it deluxe,’ Jeremy, Moschino’s creative director, told The Telegraph. ‘I wanted to play with eveningwear so I did the graffiti – it’s eveningwear that’s been tagged, that has a lived-quality of a lamppost or a mailbox. Us Weekly was on the scene at the Top of the Standard — site of the infamous Solange, Beyonce, and Jay Z elevator scuffle last year — getting a very close-up look at the star-studded soirée.

She certainly has a body to die for, and didn’t mind showing it off in a pair of teeny-tiny leather hotpants, worn with racy fishnet tights and quilted wedge boots. However, despite her ensemble looking like it might be perfect for her 18-year-old offspring, Madonna sure proved she’s got the figure to just about make it work, her legs looking enviably trim and toned in the daring bottoms.

Perennial Met gala favourite Sarah Jessica Parker put her own spin on the theme with an asymmetrical poppy and patchwork-adorned black dress straight from the high street — her own design in collaboration with H&M. Lourdes’ outfit was markedly similar to her mother’s, too: the teen beauty wore a tiny black Moschino dress with a racy cross-over detail across the bust and an almost-sheer skirt.

The show boasts a massive 30,000 square feet of gallery space filled with rich ensembles: Chinese costumes, historic garments and decorative arts, displayed beside the work of dozens of Western designers who were inspired by China, including names like John Galliano, Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren, Cristobal Balenciaga, Jean Paul Gaultier and many more. This Moschino gown (complete with a spray can clutch) fell short of red carpet elegance, and failed to relate to the China: Through the Looking Glass theme.

The celebrity offspring finished off her 1990s-inspired look with a collection of chokers and necklaces sitting on her decolletage, incredibly chunky platform shoes with silver straps, and her brunette tresses worn loose and free. Many celebrities have been busy sharing behind-the-scenes pictures of their preparations, but there is a social media ban at the event that has been circulated to all attendees, according to reports. Model Karen Elson enjoyed the drama in a beaded gold Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda bodice with matching headpiece and red tulle ball skirt, while Lady Gaga channelled a samurai in a netted coat with feathers designed by her date Alexander Wang .

And there was no denying her mum Madonna looked beautiful, her long blonde mane styled in elegant waves, with her make-up applied perfectly to show off her inexplicably youthful, glowing skin and shapely eyes. Guests will receive notice upon arrival that ‘the use of phones for photography and social media will not be permitted’ throughout the event, a controversial ban which has apparently come at the request of the evening’s host, Anna. Other standouts included Katy Perry and Madonna, matching in graffitied pop art Moschino gowns; Anne Hathaway, aka Little Gold Riding Hood, channelling C3PO in a hooded lame Ralph Lauren collection dress; and co-host Jennifer Lawrence, who eschewed drama to look divinely chic in fitted, floral Dior. Huang, who is of Chinese descent and speaks fluent Cantonese, is the new Asian ambassador for the luxury pearl brand. “Being a proud Aussie, when Kailis approached me to represent their beautiful brand to expand their Asian market, I felt it was a perfect fit!” Huang tells Buzz via email. The evidently on-again lovebirds stood very close to one another at the Boom Boom Room, leaning in for many passionate kisses and holding hands as they drank champagne and chatted with other famous attendees.

Kailis uses 100 per cent untreated Australian South Sea pearls and general manager Mark Majzner says the company will open in three Asia-Pacific locations this year: “Expanding into Asia’s growing travel retail market is a logical next step.” Staying with East Meets West, it’s the title of Adam Lippes’s first capsule collection for Net-a-porter.com, released on Monday. The 10-piece trans-seasonal collection of his sophisticated sportswear includes silhouettes in sun-bleached denim, scalloped lace and crisp cotton shirting. Pattinson, laughing and hugging the British singer, while Mayer talked shop with the Twilight actor before the men stepped outside together for a smoke.

The 23-piece capsule collection is entitled The Modern Traveller and Sam Lobban, senior buyer at Mr Porter, says the collaboration stems from the fact “many of us at Mr Porter are big fans” of COS, the Swedish-owned but London-based brand that launched its first Australian store last November in Melbourne. “We thought it could be interesting to reach out to the COS team and see if they’d be up for doing something special together,” he says. Changing into a short black minidress with her fresh flower headpiece still in place, the former child star beamed all night and did tequila shots and lots of dance moves with fellow Disney alum Vanessa Hudgens. Gomez and Witherspoon devoted more time to dancing than chatting, breaking it down to Lykke Li’s “I Follow Rivers.” Jordan popped back up for more tequila shots with Gomez and Hudgens, and spent the better part of an hour dancing with the two ladies, before Dianna Agron joined in. Although she’s pregnant with her second child, the Hart of Dixie star still managed to shut down the party at the very end, sipping water as she socialized all night with her husband Kyle Newman and four buddies.

The Dawson’s Creek alum canoodled with the actress and model, holding her and rocking back and forth after he had some bro time with a group of guy friends. As the night went on, the party just heated up with additional appearances from Elizabeth Banks, Naomi Campbell, Matt Bomer, Kate Mara, Emily Blunt, Gigi Hadid, Adriana Lima, and even New York City mayor Bill de Blasio.
