16 of the best behind-the-scenes Instagrams of the Met Gala

Because the photos you really wana see are not the ones taken on the red carpet

AS THE HANGOVER from Monday’s Met Ball Gala subsided last night for the lucky celebs who were on Anna Wintour’s coveted invite list, they took to Instagram in droves to upload some candid pictures of what went on away from the red carpet.

1. Laura Dern was hanging out with Rihanna and SZA, and was pleased AF about it

2. Like, tell me we wouldn’t all have this as our captions if we got to the Met:

@badgalriri and @sza My Goddessess #heavenlycreatures #metgala2018

3. Blake Lively, Queen of Glamour, posted a snap with her date, Reed Morano.

Reed is an American director who did the first three episodes of the Handmaid’s tale and is a name to watch out for in the future

4. Reed herself posted one of the best photos of the night – the crossover of so many celebs and so much catholic imaginosity:

Here we have Reed, Blake, Ariana Grande, Gigi Hadid and Christian Louboutin killin’ it.

5. Kim K and Donatella Versace: having chat about being the only people being under 5’4 at the Met?

6. Madonna’s selfies had #mumvibes

7. TV Presenter Andy Cohen in his own words said ‘my thirst for a selfie won out’.

Losing your cool because Rihanna and SJP were beside you? Honestly, fair. Catholicism is all about giving into temptation and asking for forgiveness later

8. Even when a candid shot of Rihanna is taken, with a 6 tonne headpiece on, she is as cool as f**king cucumber

Also, how cute and sincere does Amal look to be there? ALSO, is that Mitt Romney behind Amal and Rihanna? Or do all old white billionaires in tuxes look the same?

9. Stella McCartney was serving up group selfies: we got pharrell, naomi watts, ariana grande, and Salma Hayek squashed in.

Also awkward being in the Salma Hayek position in a selfie

10. George looks a bit bewildered at the afterparty and Miley looks like she’s an hour away from needing a three-in-one

11. Eva Chen ‘metgala-ing’ with SZA and Kate Bosworth. Jealous, us? Never

12. Eva Chen delivering what we all want – candid snaps of celebs. How p**sed off does Kim look?

13. If there’s any two you’d love to do shots with underneath a table at the Met, it’s gonna be Ruby Rose and Frances McDormand

14. Meghan Markle’s BFF Priyanka Chopra hanging out with Trevor Noah, Tessa Thompson, Lena Waithe, Darren Criss and Jenelle Monae!

What do they now know about the royal wedding that we don’t?!

15. Priyanka was also chilling with Tiffany Haddish and Karlie Kloss

If anyone could wrangle inside info out of Priyanka it’s gonna be Tiffany

16. Solange in full matrix gear in her stretch limousine.

I mean, if s**t can go down in the elevator, anything could happen in a limo
