5 biggest Met Gala red carpet moments that you probably missed, including Billy Porter's royal entrance
Hollywood's creme de la creme walked the Campy red carpet today at the Met Gala in New York sending out a clear message — they weren’t afraid to have a little fun with fashion even if it meant they would look totally silly. You loved every moment of the red carpet, the grand entrances (think Lady Gaga), the exaggerated couture and everything else but what about the things that happened that you missed?
Well, here are the five biggest secrets that the Met Gala held away from the cameras:
1. Anna Wintour seemed to approve of Lady Gaga's epic entrance
Gaga's four outfit change entrance was no less than a theatre performance and even Anna Wintour couldn't stay away. Variety reported that Wintour, who arrived just minutes before Gaga came onto the iconic steps, couldn't stop watching. When asked by a journalist about if anyone else could outdo her, she reportedly said, "They can't!"
2. Kris Jenner has a 'you're doing amazing, sweetie' moment
When Kris arrived at the pink carpet, she seemed near perfect. She is said to have walked up the stairs in her beautiful gown and was seen standing there for over an hour. She is said to have made small talk, welcomed other stars until the person she was waiting for finally arrived. Kris pulled out her cell phone and started shooting as Kim walked up the stairs. awww.
3. Katy Perry's outfit wasn't as lit on the practical scale
Katy Perry's chandelier outfit was as uncomfortable and impractical as it looked. She is said to have confessed on the carpet, "I'm retiring the word 'lit' tonight" as she struggled to climb up the stairs.
4. Billy Porter's spectacular entrance
While the world fussed and fumed over Gaga, king of Camp Billy Porter made an entrance fit for the kings or queens. He arrived at the entrance on a caravan resting on the shoulders of six very shirtless men. After he got off the caravan, like a bird about to take flight, he revealed his golden wings. That golden outfit took him five hours of prep.
5. Sweet domestic bliss
The red carpet this year had plenty of couples and most of them are newly hitched. Jennifer Lopez and A-Rod looked inseparable as they arrived at Gala. The couple held hands and walked up the stairs beaming. As for Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra, the two spent some time talking to the press and obviously, since this is where their story started back in 2017, it must have been super special for them. Then there was the fact that they just could keep their hands off each other throughout. There was also an unlikely couple that made a debut together — Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes.
