The theme of this year’s event was Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology and there was no shortage of that from Beyoncé’s latex gown to Kim K’s silver Balmain creation. We feel like, with a little tweaking and a whole lot of subtlety, we can all give the look a go. Here are some of the best Met Gala inspired pieces we have found ...
