For this year’s Met Gala Ball, the theme was ‘Heavenly Bodies’, and there were a few celebrities that reached for the stars and stunted the solar system, and those that were struck into orbit and landed in Uranus. Because we are pressed for time, we are going to ignore those that struck out, and concentrate on those that stunted and fronted. Who made the list this year?

Here are the receipts!

Cardi B

Met Gala

The hottest woman in hip hop right now (sorry Nicki and Remy!), Cardi B didn’t let the fact that her babything is about to drop out her crevice at any moment. Instead of waiting another year to show up and show out, Cardi decided to throw caution to the wind, tuck her bun in the oven, and sashay down that red carpet with her handmaidens standing on the sidelines praying nothing dropped out. With lips, titties, and stomach a-poppin’, Cardi B made The Vatican stand up and salute ALL her curves. That’s right, Cardi. Let.Them.KNOW!


Alek Wek

Met Gala

If you’ve been bored and wondering what ever happened to the REAL models of the world went as you yawn and lament the stale porridge of the runways that counts as top models with Gigi and Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner, your prayers were answered this year as Alek Wek decided to pop in and stunt on those Instagram models with supermodel aspirations. If you’re going to pop out, then Make.It.Pop!



Met Gala

If you thought Rihanna was just going to sit on the sidelines and let those other poptrixxx get all the attention and take a year off, she quickly put that rumor to rest with this creation that made The Vatican say 10,000 Hail Marys. From head to toe yet again, Ri-Ri took the theme of the night and ran away with it in extremely high heels.

Take that, Katy Perry!

Janelle Monae

Met Gala

For those that haven’t figured it out by now, it’s Janelle Monae‘s world and she just allows us to live in it to take in all of her glory! Who knew that a dirty computer could get this damn clean and shine this bright! Black and white have always been her signature colors, but on any red carpet? Janelle gives us serious fever!


Met Gala

Aw sooky sooky now!

With a look this damn hot, Solange definitely didn’t even need the hot sauce in her bag! If this look is wrong, we don’t want to be right! And for anyone that doesn’t believe in heaven, you might want to whisper in Solange’s ear and ask her how to get there.


Take notes, chirrenz!

Chadwick Boseman

Met Gala

Usually, it’s primarily women frontin’ on red carpets, but why should they have all the fun? Chadwick Boseman got out there and proved that the men have every right to step out just as much as the women. Of course, he went above and beyond the expected and we approve. Hear this Black Panther roar!
