12 Met Gala dresses and their bodega counterparts

Will Gleason

Last night, the fashion glitterati assembled on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art to celebrate the opening of this year’s Costume Institute exhibition: “China: Through the Looking Glass.” Even though the Asian-themed evening had some nervously expecting an evening full of problematic looks, the results were surprisingly tame overall for the “fashion Super Bowl.” Even, Katy Perry managed to leave the cultural appropriation at home for the most part.

But, as always, there were plenty of eye-catching dresses. In fact, from Rihanna’s omelette-chic cape to Solange’s vitamin water-hued frock, there seemed to be another, even more daring trend that emerged from last night's fashion showcase. Without further ado, we present "Corner Bodega: Through the Looking Glass."
