Vanessa Hudgens and La La Anthony, Vogue’s livestream hosts, were among the event’s early arrivals. Hudgens wore a sheer black Moschino gown paired with Jimmy Cho shoes, while Anthony sparkled in a reddish-brown satin cut-out dress designed by LaQuan Smith.
Blake Lively shimmered onto the Met Gala’s red carpet in a metallic gown with a massive bow that flowed into a train. Lively's dress transformed on the carpet, losing the bow and gaining a new color. Lively was accompanied by her tuxedo-wearing husband and gala co-host, Ryan Reynolds.
