30 Best Celebrity Instagrams From the 2014 Met Gala

By

Last night was the glitziest, most glamorous evening in the fashion universe: the Met Costume Institute Gala. Also known as the Met Ball or “Fashion Prom,” the Gala brings Hollywood and the fashion industry together to celebrate the opening of the Costume Institute’s latest exhibit.
