The 2017 Met Gala celebrated the launch of the “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between” exhibit with an avant-garde theme to celebrate.

As part of the lead-up to the event, A-list celebrities navigated the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s famous steps while clad in their best statement-making garments.

So far, we’ve seen bold fashion statements from Nicki Minaj, Halle Berry, Priyanka Chopra, Katy Perry, Blake Lively, and Solange Knowles.

Salma Hayek and Lily Aldridge both made statements of their own in striking thigh-high boots at the event. While most attendees opted for platform sandals and towering pumps, these two stunners walked up the steps in colorful Balenciaga “Knife” boots that you can find at Net-A-Porter and Matches Fashion.
