Monday night’s annual Met Gala was the toast of the Internet, but it also demonstrated how the Web makes red carpet events into increasingly public affairs. Every step celebrities take seems to be photographed and instantly uploaded to the web for the consumption of all.
But not all of that consumption breeds negative or hyper-critical attention. When Tumblr fans got their hands on the glamorous looks their favorite celebs were sporting, many of them did more than just sing praises or criticize what they were wearing. Some of them, particularly a number of Tumblr’s fashion designers and artists, responded with gorgeous fanart.
Here are a few of our favorites.
Fashion designer and illustrater Yigit Ozcakmak shared several sketches inspired by the much-photographed looks several women were wearing at the event:
