Hate to see her go but love to watch her leave was another trend at Monday’s Met Gala. Stylish celebs went all out with trains and many of them, like Sarah Jessica Parker, had helpers to get them and their elaborate trains climb up those epic stairs. “I’m on train duty,” said SJP’s date Andy Cohen, who dutifully followed her with a helping hand. Lady Rihanna had no fewer than three people lifting her showstopping Guo Pei cloak. When asked about the challenges of wearing the look, Rihanna, who seemed to take all her might to get to the top, exclaimed “It’s heavy!”.
Beyonce, who arrived more than an hour after all the guests had settled into dinner inside, had stylist Ty Hunter following her every sashay, arranging her jewel-encrusted tulle train just so. Kim Kardashian’s feathered confection didn’t fare quite as well. While Kanye carefully helped her up the steps, her train left a trail of white feathers in her path. Kind of fitting for Kim, who always leaves her mark. Be sure to see all the dresses here.
