The theme of last night’s Met Gala was "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology," which will.i.am interpreted as “Cowboy Daft Punk.” Needless to say, most of this fashion isn’t exactly accessible to those aren’t on the Met Gala guest list, but that didn’t stop Brazilian João Paulo from taking it upon himself to recreate the night’s best looks to the best of his ability on Instagram.
Paulo has a long history of recreating celebrity fashion with layman's materials, but something about the futuristic looks of the Met Gala worked especially well.
If anything, Paulo shows us just how easy it is to put together these fashionable looks yourself. For instance, Anna Wintour’s dress is something your grandmother could easily crochet; Zayn could have just snuck onto the set of Star Wars to score his arms; and to look like Rita Ora, one need only to catch an Articuno within the Seafoam Islands in Pokemon Red. Or, if that's all too difficult, just channel Kanye and explain what you're wearing as "vibes."
