Lili Reinhart has only attended the Met Gala twice at this point, but, man — the girl sure knows how to make a statement. Last year, it was her relationship, rather than her outfit, that had us talking: Lili attended the event with Riverdale co-star Cole Sprouse, conforming they were indeed a real-life couple.

Amazingly, Lili's look was 100 percent hand sewn and took a total of 120 hours to construct. That hard work obviously paid off, as she looked stunning as she walked up those famous Met steps.

Lili completed her look with layered jeweled necklaces, silver heels, and an oversize floral hair accessory.
