Award shows are always unpredictable, but now that the world is completely flipped upside down, there's an additional fun layer of 'What the hell is going on?' at every televised event. Still, for many of us, it's an evening we can all take to pretend things are almost back to normal, and find comfort in all of the mishaps and uncomfortable speeches that consistently take place. This year there were no falls on the red carpet, or awards that had to be revoked. But there were definitely a lot of other things to comment on. Twitter thankfully covered all the bases very quickly.
The annual Met gala usually takes place on the first Monday in May, but COVID-19 meant that fashion's biggest event of the year was put on hold. This didn't stop fashion fans from celebrating anyway, many of whom took part in the #MetGalaChallenge. The initiative was started by Vogue and Billy Porter and invites Instagram users to recreate some of their favorite red carpet looks of the past at home. Not only did they jump at the chance, but the DIY results of these fashion enthusiasts are absolutely incredible, especially given that most of the outfits are made using whatever the creators can find at home. Check out some of the gems that emerged from this online challenge below.
