Fashion’s biggest night of the year has arrived, and this time it’s gone completely avant-garde.

The 2017 Met Gala paid homage to Comme des Garçons and Rei Kawakubo, the fashion house’s visionary founder and designer of over 40 years. It’s the first time the costume institute has dedicated its theme and exhibit to a living designer since the Yves Saint Laurent exhibit in 1983, according to Vogue.

Priyanka Chopra attends the "Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art Of The In-Between" Costume Institute Gala at Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 1, 2017 in New York City.

Kawakubo’s designs are known for their construction (and often deconstruction), raw edges and unusual shapes. The celebrities, models and designers in attendance stayed true to those concepts.

Katy Perry arrived draped in a deconstructed look complete with a veil covering her face, Priyanka Chopra wore a trench coat of epic proportions and there was a lot of red ― which makes sense, seeing as Kawakubo once said, “red is black.”

There’s no shortage of images of the beautiful attendees wearing beautiful clothing, but you won’t see these exclusive photos ― including detail shots and candid moments from the event ― anywhere else. Check them out in all their intricate glory below.
