With a theme that encouraged bold, over-the-top and, at times, ridiculous looks, the Internet gladly took to turning designer wares into kitschy memes, comparing Kim Kardashians’ custom Thierry Mugler look to a croissant and Katy Perry’s Moschino chandelier to Lumière from Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast,” among others.
The Met Gala pink carpet also produced a number of topical memes, referencing HBO’s “Game of Thrones” and Marvel’s “Avengers.” Florence Welch, dressed in custom Gucci, was compared to the Night King from “Game of Thrones,” and Benedict Cumberbatch’s green gemstone brooch was compared to the time stone that his character Doctor Strange protects in the Marvel Studios franchise.
Read on to see more memes from the 2019 Met Gala.
