The Costume Institute Met Gala 2016 was held in New York on Monday evening, featuring some very interesting celebrity fashions that led to some hilarious memes. The theme was Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age of Technology this year. Check out the best memes from the fashionable night including celebs such as Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift and more!
The A-list stars strutted their stuff down the red carpet and we have to admit some looked rather ridiculous. At least the fashion disasters led to some rather entertaining memes.
Beyonce, who recently debuted her visual album Lemonade, was one target of the evening. Bey donned a nude latex dress with embellishments. Fans joked that the singer was wearing “Becky’s skin and teeth”, referring to her cheating song about a woman called “Becky.”
The Twitter user, ryancoffey1, wrote, “She’s wearing Becky’s skin. The accents on the dress… are her teeth, as confetti. I get it, Bey.”

Reality star Kim Kardashian was also the subject of several memes based off of her silver sequined Balmain gown. Social media users compared her to the droid C-3PO of “Star Wars.”
Kim, 35, also had her dress compared to jiffy pop foil.

Kim’s rapper hubby Kanye West also landed some memes over his blue contacts. West was asked about his look and he simply answered, “Vibes.” Alrighty, then!
