On Monday night, the fashion didn’t stop when the Met Gala came to a close. Following the reception, celebrities partied the night away. But their dramatic looks — many featuring massive trains, large headpieces, and tight corsets — weren’t necessarily fit for dancing with Rihanna at a night club. So many made outfit changes — but no one sacrificed fashion for comfort. From Blake Lively’s tartan ensemble to Kim Kardashian‘s LBD, here are the best ensembles that didn’t make the red carpet cut.
