The biggest night in fashion went on past the Met Gala red carpet last night. Once the museum doors closed, celebrities shed their armor and ditched their many, many headpieces to change into more dance-appropriate garb.
If you’re Blake Lively, you pulled on some plaid knee-high boots. If you’re Bella Hadid, you whipped out leather and chains. If you’re Rihanna, you didn't show up to your own party until 3am in sparkly pajamas. All hail Rihsus!
The looks were relaxed but still semi-on-theme—if bondage and hiked-up hems are considered your Sunday best. Our real winners were definitely from earlier in the evening, but these are still worth checking out for more... casual, everyday inspiration. Ahead, check out our after-party favorites.
