Due to the pandemic, and in turn, the stay-at-home orders mandated by New York officials, there will be no Met Gala tonight
No getting-ready Instagram stories, no behind-the-scenes walk-throughs with designers, no red carpet unveilings, and arguably the most disappointing of all — no bathroom selfies.
Whether or not you follow fashion, if you’re a person who scrolls through the internet, you’ve likely encountered a bathroom selfie from the Met Gala (you just might not have known where it came from, or why all those A-listers were in couture gowns in a bathroom together). But if you are someone who looks forward to the first Monday in May with the same level of obsession as us, you
probably have the iconic (be it grainy) image of Armie Hammer vaping in the background of a shot intended to catch Dakota Johnson lighting a cigarette in the Met’s tiled bathroom, framed on your nightstand. Either way, you’ve come to the right place: an archive of the best Met Gala bathroom selfies of all time
The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Benefit has a very strict no phone or social media policy. After all, it’s one of the most exclusive parties in fashion. If you’re not on the list, you’re not getting inside — physically or virtually. But there’s one aspect to the rule — made popular by none other than social media maven and self-made billionaire Kylie Jenner — that attendees love to disregard: the bathroom selfie.
