Each year, the Met Gala is truly a spectacle for the biggest names in fashion, coming together to serve the most insane, over-the-top looks imaginable. We loved seeing the truly incredible things they came up with, but we’re also obsessed with all the behind-the-scenes 2017 Met Gala photos of what goes on before the celebrities hit the red carpet.
Thankfully, stars love to share getting-ready photos on social media, documenting the intense amount of effort it takes to create those fabulous looks. And we are eternally grateful. Check out some of the best social media snaps from before the big event.
