7 met gala selfies that broke the rules

who could resist?

One of the best parts of any event is the selfies you get to take. When we found out that Coachella banned selfie sticks we were a bit thrown off—one of the major appeals of attending the high-profile music festival is taking photos of yourself there, after all. Yet more recently, a more illustrious (and super exclusive) event enacted an even stricter selfie mandate: the Metropolitan Museum of Art banned selfies and social media postings during its annual gala. But never fear—plenty of celebs in attendance were completely in favor of skirting the rules.

The resulting selfies of the night from stars like Kendall Jenner, Justin Bieber, Vanessa Hudgens, Madonna, and more may not have been ordained, but they should come as no surprise. A night with fancy dresses, A-listers, and a tight guest list can only encourage selfie-taking. Plus, for some celebs, selfies have become not just a fun way to capture the moment, but a way of life (ahem, Kim K). Should they not adequately document their night, they may cease to exist at all. As Descartes (probably) would have said were he alive today, "I selfie, therefore I am."

Hence, no law or decree can stop the force of selfies. And so we have these photos to look at and live vicariously thought.
