We've already torn the proverbial out of those who got it wrong on last night's Met Gala red carpet, and of course paying dues to those who nailed it, but sometimes what's far more interesting is what goes on behind the scenes as celebrities get ready, mingle with their super famous mates and have access to areas we plebs can only dream of. Behold, the best celebrity Instagram posts from the 2016 Met Gala. Just lol...



Amy Schumer keeping it real with the Met Prep, throwing shade at the ridiculous lengths her fellow celebrities will go to when getting ready for an event like this.
