This year for the Met Gala Priyanka Chopra Jonas stepped out in a dramatic nude-coloured Dior gown with feather detailing from its Spring 2018 collection sporting a bizarre curly hairdo topped with a silver-straw crown and loud make up complete with a bindi. Twitterati donned their funny hat and had everyone in splits with their reactions.

The outfits this year will be based on “irony, humour, parody, pastiche, artifice, theatricality and exaggeration”. Clearly, the celebrities seem to have gone for the ‘exaggeration’ bit.
