Another year, another Met Gala, and yet again our invitation seems to have got lost in the mail. This year's Met Gala gave us all the glitz and glamour we’ve been missing over the last year and a half, but with the incredible fashion displays worn by our fave celebs, so too come the memes—so here are all the best Met Gala Memes.
The night for those attending is far from funny, it’s the most prestigious of fashion events, held at the iconic Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. We saw congresswoman AOC call for taxes on the rich and Billie Eilish even put an end to fur at Oscar de la Renta. But social media memes know no limits, the creative users could make a meme out of anything—and they do.
So let's dive into some of our favorites...
1. Kim is that you?
Twitter had a lot to say about Kim’s literally head-to-toe Balenciaga look. It really made a statement, but some fans thought the whole look was a bit familiar and reminiscent of a certain creature from Harry Potter...

Another said: “bruh kim kardashian looking like an unlockable character”

2. Just show us the dog
Despite all the biggest brands putting on a mind-blowing display of creativity and artistry, the spotlight was very quickly stolen by a glimpse of a golden retriever that was in attendance.

3. Winter is officially here
Riri and A$AP are officially winter-ready, with their dramatic, and very cozy-looking coats. Personally, we think it's a vibe, who wouldn't want to wear a giant Balenciaga coat in September?

But regardless, she’ll always be the queen of the Met Gala, and this year she really left us in suspense.

4. Did Jason Derulo fall though?

The short answer—no, he did not. This now-iconic photo is not of Jason Derulo, but it will likely be a returning joke for many Met’s to come
5. Everyone’s a critic
The Met Gala really does things to us…

As one Twitter user says: “Ready to give my unsolicited opinions.”

6. Why the green baby?
Met Gala viewers were rightfully puzzled by Frank Ocean carrying around a green baby...
