For those who did hit the red carpet Monday night, though, getting-ready pics were necessary. First-time guest and emerging style star Amandla Stenberg struck a wide pose, showcasing the voluminous hem of her custom Calvin Klein red wide-leg pantsuit with matching crop top and blazer. Edie Campbell quite literally followed suit, putting her best foot forward in her Burberry glam-rock floor-skimming flares and tailored blazer—sans shirt, of course. The evening’s latest, most awaited arrival, Beyoncé smoldered on the Met steps in her pearl-studded Givenchy latex gown, but not before taking her own photo.
While it was a big week in fashion, politics certainly loomed large, too, and Emily Ratajkowski was in the midst of both worlds. At the White House, where she wore a patriotic red dress while lobbying for arts funding in public schools, she appeared to make a very convincing case.
