See All the Best Behind-the-Scenes Photos From the 2017 Met Gala

May 01, 2017

The 69th annual Met Gala is basically fashion's biggest night, with everyone from designers and models to editors and celebrities dressing to the nines. While the tonight's Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons theme ensures that we'll see some truly memorable looks on the red carpet, it's always wise to remember that the fantastic looks of the night don't happen on their own. A quick scroll through our social feeds showed us that there was plenty of excitement happening before fashion's biggest night, behind the scenes.

From gala co-chairs Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady sharing a sweet smooch while getting ready for the night's festivities to Madonna revealing her beauty prep before the gala, here are the best behind-the-scenes Instagrams from all the stars and fashion insiders at the 2017 Met Gala.
