The Met Gala is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated events in Hollywood and this year’s theme “Camp: Notes on Fashion” may inspired the most memes on the event ever. Many of the outfits worn by stars at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, were quickly spun into memes on social media.

While Priyanka Chopra’s unusual hairdo reminded many of a “bird’s nest” and attracted a fair bit of attention, global audiences couldn’t get enough of Katy Perry’s ‘chandelier’ look. Donning not one, but two giant chandeliers on her head and body, the pop star’s pictures from the special night quickly inspired a new meme.

Kim Kardashian’s sheer bronze look was compared to a crisp golden croissant while Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s looks reminded people of many things.

Lady Gaga’s four outfit changes at the sartorial fest stunned fans, but it was Billy Potter’s golden avatar that stole the show, even reminding Indian fans of Bappi Lahiri!
