2. @zendaya Engagement rate 8,2%
Zendaya received 4 553 663 and 18 920 comments!
She was wearing a Disney Cinderella-inspired gown. What made it a true Met Gala
Instagram worthy moment was when her stylist Law Roach, dressed as The Fairy Godmother, cast a spell on Zendaya as the two were walking down the red carpet, transforming the shape and lighting up the dress while lots of smoke was coming out of the tip of the wand.
3. @metmuseum Engagement rate 8,1%
Lady Gaga kept true to herself and received 248 290 likes and 3 034 comments!
She showed up in a beautiful pink gown with a 25-foot train accompanied by the designer Brandon Maxwell, glam squad and backup dancers in tow. And of course it did not end there! She decided to remove each layer of her costume in the middle of the red carpet, and continued to the party in her sparkling underwear- at least she did not have any issues when it came to sitting down at the dinner table!
4. @jaredleto Engagement rate 6,3%
Jared Leto received 638 900 likes and 7421 comments!
Jared showed up on the red carpet wearing a Gucci gown with not only one, but two heads! All through the night he proudly carried a wax version in his hands, and obviously everyone wanted a photo with it, so now Instagram is full of pictures of celebrities holding Jared Leto’s head!
5. @themetgalaoffical Engagement rate 5,2%
Ezra Miller received 199 710 likes and 2 401 comments!
Everyone was impressed by Ezra Miller’s creativity. The “Justice League” actor showed up at the Met Gala looking rather unique in his proper black Burberry suit, wearing bold red lipstick and multiple pairs of eyes painted on his face.
6. @theebillyporter Engagement rate 4,8%
Bill Porter, the star of FX’s Pose, received 207 246 and 5 368 comments!
