The only gala where all you have to do is put up your quirkiest step forward, and dress not to impress, but to annihilate; the Met Gala is no small affair. With all the top stars in attendance, predictions of who will wear what, this gala is one of a kind, and everyone dresses at their quirky best. With the theme of ‘Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology’ for the 2016 affair, all the celebs dressed futuristic. And needless to say, they look just as edgy, even in the future! 

This year’s Met was all about sequins, metallic jackets, dresses, and the floral bit, that somehow always makes its ways to the gala, no matter what the theme may be. 

Without much ado, we bring to you the most fantastic, futuristic outfits of the evening:

1. Claire Danes

Claire Danes’ Cinderella like dress is so simple, right? Not really. What seems like a simple gown is actually not that simple. 

Here’s the real deal

Yes, this fantastic dress by Zac Posen illuminates in the dark! *WOW*

2. Naomi Watts

Always trust the veterans to do it right. Naomi Watts in this Burberry floral sequined gown looks absolutely stunning.

3. Nicole Kidman

Looks like Alexander McQueen assembled the whole galaxy to form this beautiful piece for Nicole.

4. Miranda Kerr

Quirky and unconventionally futuristic. Trust Miranda to give you major fashion goals in this Louis Vuitton outfit.

5. Kate Bosworth

A mythology in the future requires a goddess. Behold, Kate, the goddess of the future, in this Dolce & Gabbana dress. 

6. Karlie Kloss

Simple yet elegant. We know the future is bright and chic with Karlie in this Brandon Maxwell gown. 

7. Emma Stone

This dress is not too futuristic, but we like it anyway. The detailed belt and shoulder straps on this Prada outfit are exquisitely beautiful.  

8. Emma Watson

Damn! We love the hair, the off-shoulder, and the detailing that has gone into making the pants. Full points for chicness to Calvin Klein. 

9. Alicia Vikander

Alicia seems to be rocking this Louis Vuitton. The cuts, the pattern, the red, all of it looks pretty perfect on her. 

10. Rachel McAdams

Vampy lips and the beautiful gold Valentino dress, Rachel definitely knows what works for her. 

11. Kylie Jenner

None of the other Jenners or Kardashians have made it to the list. But Kylie’s sheer dress by Balmain, and the hair, is absolutely nailing the Met look. 

12. Kate Hudson

Now this dress from Versace is definitely stunning. The paper like details are beautiful and quite different from what we have seen this evening. 

13. Poppy Delevingne

The beautiful beaded chandelier dress by Marchesa, the spot on accessories, and her long, luscious hair, Poppy deserves full points for doing shimmer just right.

14. Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik

The new love birds look adorable together. The metallic forearms on Zayn and his Versace suit, and Gigi’s finger rings and her Tommy Hilfiger outfit are complimenting each other really well. Now, that’s what we call a perfect couple. 

15. Lupita Nyong’o

More shimmer. But this time, it’s with an absolute crazy hairdo which we totally approve of. Hair’s the future people. Lupita is killing it in this Calvin Klein gown. 

16. Kristen Stewart

This leather beauty from Chanel is badass futuristic. Kristen is killing it with the hair, the eye make up, and the boots.

17. Taylor Swift

Vampy lips seem to be making a comeback. Louis Vuitton on, with some leather strappy sandals, and you’re ready for the wild future. Great going, Swift.

18. Lily Alridge

A simple outfit with a beautiful cut. Look closer, and you’ll see her brows are glittered. Now that’s quite stunning. 

19. Saoirse Ronan

The little studded butterfly, the feather details on the shoulders, and the beautiful eyes, Saoirse is giving major competition to the newbies in this Christopher Kane outfit. 

20. Demi Lovato

Now this is futuristic royale. Demi Lovato in this Jeremy Scott gown looks every bit royal. Look at all that golden detail, man!

21. Katy Perry

You know Katy Perry can rock any outfit, but this Prada outfit deserves every praise that our mouths can sing. Hail the beautiful vampy queen of the future!

22. Jourdan Dunn

Now that’s a warrior like gown! Beautiful cuts, and the detail on it is absolutely stunning! 

23. Allison Williams

Floral and mettalic, n ow that’s one combination we never thought would look so pretty. All thanks to Peter Pilotto. 

24. Jennifer Connelly

A sequined Louis Vuitton dress with those gorgeous grungy boots? We’d say pretty awesome!

25. Willow and Jaden Smith

Now you know that age has nothing to do with fashion. The brother-sister duo are definitely slaying it. Look at these two gorgeous people totally killing it, Jaden in Louis Vuitton, and Willow in Chanel.

26. Anna Ewers

Shiny and silver feathery, Anna Ewers sported a beautiful dress by Jason Wu. Now that works for the futuristic theme of the Gala for sure. 

27. Lorde

One expects something quirky from Lorde, but this dress from Valentino is just plain beautiful. Also, her hand gloves are pretty quirky. So there’s some Lorde-ness there. 

28. Anna Kendrick

This Derek Lam gown is absolutely stunning. Wonder what would she be in the future? 

29. Beyonce

Staying true to her statement, Beyonce wore a Givenchy dress. We believe her game was stronger last year. But you do look gorgeous without doubt, Yonce. 

30. Rita Ora

Rita Ora’s train definitely demanded attention. She wore Vera Wang and looked absolutely fierce. 

31. Blake Lively

Lively looked very pretty, and stood out in this beautiful Burberry gown.

Margot Robbie looks like an ethereal beauty in this strapless white Calvin Klein gown and the gold cuffs.

This leading lady looks absolutely stunning in a Michael Kors collection gown. 

38. Idris Elba

Idris looks like a dream come true in this Tom Ford tux.

Tom Hiddleston rocks a Ralph Lauren tuxedo with a pique bow tie. We like!

47. Alexa Chung

Alexa dazzles in a Thakoon tuxedo. Now this is suit done right.

The power couple look ravishing in their matching outfits and make for one of the best dressed couples. Kim K is wearing Balmain, and Kanye is looking handsome in Fear of God.

Even though many people from last year gave it a miss, there was no dearth of quirky outfits this season.
