Star Wars at the Met Gala

Who is straight up wearing Padmé’s Nubian Night gown from Episode II, if in sheer grey. And Zayn has robot arms! It’s perfect. But having found one Padmé, well, I mean — she has so many outfits, and the Met Gala’s “Manus x Machina” theme this year just plays right into the galaxy far, far away. . .
