There’s no denying that the year-long lead up to the Met Gala can often feel never-ending. However, once it’s officially the first Monday in May and the A-list set begins to saunter up those iconic stairs (you know the ones), fashion’s Super Bowl often flies by in the blink of an eye. And this year’s soirée was no different. Seriously, where did the time go? If you’re like us and experienced major sartorial withdrawal as soon as the Vogue livestream ended, don’t worry, there are plenty of celebrity after-party looks for you to gush over today — including even more noteworthy takes on the ball’s “Garden of Time” dress code.

At around 10:30 pm on Monday evening, celebrities raced from the Metropolitan Museum of Art back to their five-star hotels to switch into their after-hours attire. One of the first to step out post-Met was Kendall Jenner, styled two equally-angelic mini dresses, with one being a 26-year-old Givenchy archive pull. Then there was Sydney Sweeney’s ‘90s-inspired all-brown co-ord from Miu Miu, which made for the perfect outfit formula to dance the night away in. Meanwhile, across town, at the star-studded Loewe bash, Zendaya turned heads for the umpteenth time last night with her fourth look of the evening — a flowy gray gown with a striking halter-neck that was certainly up to par with her “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion” interpretations.

And that’s not all. Keep scrolling for the best Met Gala after-party fashion moments from the celebrity set. Trust us, the never-ending outfit inspo will tide you over until the first Monday in May rolls around again.

Jenner’s head-turning Givenchy streak continued after the “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion” festivities. The 818 founder swapped her never-before-worn Givenchy 1999 ensemble for another vintage number from the atelier, a statement LWD from the label’s 1997 collection adorned with a wing-like leather corset bodice.

A few hours later, the model was snapped by the paparazzi in another all-white look accessorized with a bottle of her 818 tequila (iconic). Jenner looked timeless in a custom lacy mini dress courtesy of Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood.
