Stephen Colbert Describes Some of the Best Looks at the Met Gala

Did you watch the Met Gala on Monday? It was a crazy celebration of high fashion and star power. This year’s exhibition, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” attracted a few raised eyebrows but it also inspired some incredible haute couture outfits! Celebrities including Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Chadwick Boseman, wore clothing inspired by papal vestments, angels, and religious iconography. Also in attendance at the fashion party of the year? Stephen Colbert and Evelyn McGee-Colbert.

Colbert was dressed to the nines by the wardrobe mistress and costume designer for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and the comedian was voted one of the best-dressed men by Esquire Magazine. But the late night host wasn’t going to let an opportunity like the Meta Gala pass him by without a few zingers. Colbert had a few choice words for his own appearance—he was wearing “Grandpa’s couch cushions”—and his fellow celebrity guests, including Rihanna, Jared Leto, and Frances McDormand.
