These days, one Met Gala look simply isn’t enough, especially when your red carpet outfit is particularly elaborate (and most of them are). After the main event, the celebrity attendees reemerged to attend after-parties thrown by Rihanna and A$AP Rocky, Justin and Hailey Bieber, and many more. For some, that meant shortening their hemlines. For others, that meant changing from towering heels to sneakers, and for others still, that meant just staying in their red carpet outfit—but with a few modifications.
As you’ll see below, the most popular colors on the after-party scene were black, red, and gold, and people were really ready to go all out and dress up for the return of one of the most highly anticipated nights of the year. Scroll on to see how celebs like Kendall Jenner, Olivia Rodrigo, and, of course, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky dressed to party the night away.
