The 2014 Met Gala might have been days ago, but the world is STILL talking about Beyonce's red carpet appearance—and not just because Jay Z pretended to propose to her. Her ultra-glamorous getup, consisting of a Givenchy dress and birdcage veil, was easily one of the evening's best couture displays. And judging by the designer sketch Beyonce posted on her website, the ensemble was stunning from the very start.

Yes, Beyonce really dropped her ring on the red carpet. And yes, Jay Z picked it up and pretended to propose to her (again). Yes, Lupita channeled the roaring '20s. And yes, Selena and Taylor did their best twirling (despite Meredith's antics). But the 2014 Met Gala was held to celebrate Charles James. The British-born American designer is best known for his glamorous sculptural ball gowns, masterpieces of construction and textile architecture, and the Met Gala attendees went for BIG skirts and unbridled opulence to fit with the theme. Peep some of the most extravagant, most voluminous looks!

After the party, as the saying goes, comes the after-party, and there were a whole lotta them after last night's Costume Institute Gala—because, unlike Cinderella, celebrities' fancy dresses don't disappear at the strike of midnight.

Well, usually. In the case of a few of our faves, though, they very well may have. How else can you explain why Kristen Stewart, who was looking unusually ladylike in a Chanel number that had enough sequins to impress a prom queen, made a sudden reappearance in Chucks and a T-shirt (a perfect and frustratingly elusive worn-to-threads vintage tee that probably cost as much as a year's worth of Hanes crewnecks, but a tee nonetheless)?

Taylor Swift, Met Gala

Yesterday, mere hours before the 2014 Met Gala, Taylor Swift tweeted that her cat, Meredith, had attacked her custom satin Oscar de la Renta gown. Meredith, in case you don't follow Taylor's Instagram closely, sits in bizarre, human-like positions and is pretty terrifying. It's not hard to imagine that the running dialogue in her head is akin to that of a human—and that's exactly what we did for the latest installment of Fashion Fanfic. Below is her account of yesterday, as Taylor prepared for the Met Gala.

Meredith extended her front paws far ahead of her, as she rolled onto her back. She had just been (rudely) awakened by the rustling of Taylor's house slippers. She was practicing her twirling for the red carpet.

"Um, I know that she's getting ready right now for the Met Gala," Meredith thought to herself, "but I'm hungry."

The internet's favorite deadpan cat had just woken up from her fourth nap of the day and was disgusted to find her food bowl dangerously low.

"I'll lose the cute little figure everyone loves so much on ~Instagram~ if Taylor doesn't feed me soon. Does she want that? Everyone loves a picture of a fat cat on Instagram, especially Taylor. I need food. Now."

Meredith arched her back and picked herself up to circle around Taylor's ankles.

"That'll remind her that I exist."

The smell of loose sugar and flour in the air meant that Karlie was on her way over soon to bake several batches of cookies before the event. It also meant there wasn't much time left to get Taylor's attention before she was in full-tilt BFF mode.

"If I'm not fed before they start baking, there will be consequences. Major ones."

If there's one time of year to try out the world's riskiest fashions, it would certainly be the annual Met Gala. For undeniable proof, see: last night. The 2014 Met Gala brought us tuxedos and tails, ball gowns the size of cars, and enough crazy hair and makeup trends to last us until next year. One such crazy hair trend? The braid.

I know, I know. Braids have been trendy for a while, but the hairstyles we saw last night were of an innovative, glammed-up generation of plaits. Check out our favorite looks from the House of Braids 2.0:

In addition to giving her red hair its red-carpet debut, Kristen Stewart also picked the Met Gala to rock a messy yet fabulous fishtail braid. The casual feel of the braid contrasted beautifully with the deep '40s wave in the front—perfect for K-Stew's complex personal style.

While at the Met Galas of the past attendees tended to bring designers as their dates, this year a number of IRL couples hit the carpet together. Between Beyonce and Jay Z pretending to get engaged to Kanye West and Kim Kardashian serving some real old school glamour vibes, this year's Met Gala was full of stylish couples who deserve our attention. Let's give it to them!

Beyonce and Jay Z matched in Givenchy–she in a plunging sheer gown, he in a black-and-white tux. Bey accessorized with a sheer veil and dark lipstick, while Jay accessorized with a sparkly ring. JK, he merely picked it up for Bey when she dropped it. What a gentleman.

Red carpet millinery is happening for 2014, y'all. Write it down. Pharrell Williams made a big splash with his Vivienne Westwood Buffalo hat at the 2014 Grammys, sparking memes and historical explanation pieces a plenty. Now, a few short months later, Erykah Badu hit the 2014 Met Gala red carpet in a big (dare I say, bigger?) hat of her own.

Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart has put her hair through a lot lately. First, she lightened it to a subtle orange. Then, less than a week later, she dyed it BRIGHT red—think Ariel from The Little Mermaid in denim and plaid. So, we couldn't help but wonder what shade her locks would rock at tonight's Met Gala. That K-Stew always keeps us on our toes.

Well, she ended up keeping the red tresses—perhaps to match the famous red carpet? But since this is the Met Gala we're talking about here, Kristen debuted a glammed up version of her redheaded self. The shade was sliiightly less jarring than her original one, and the entire 'do was softened up with a messy-chic fishtail braid.

8:38 PM — And that's a wrap! Time to put my shoes back on and microwave a plate of taquitos! XOXO.

8:32 PM — Beyonce and Jay Z have arrived. They're glittering and gorgeous, of course. Bey's wearing a black veil, Jay's in a white suit jacket. Beyonce dropped her ring and Jay presented it to her like a proposal and now I'm gonna tell everyone I meet for the rest of my life.

8:30 PM — Rihanna HAS ARRIVED #nobasiczone. She's in white head-to-toe with structured shoulders. She's got a knotted skirt which is giving THE BEST draping action. She's also wearing a rhinestone headband/tiara which makes sense because she's da KWEEN.

8:29 PM — Anne Hathaway's red column dress is strikingly simple, no?

8:28 PM — Overheard every time there's a big scream: "It's GOTTA be Beyoncé."

8:27 PM — Joke's on y'all I took my shoes off hours ago.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
