The Top 5 Celebrity Met Gala Instagrams, Ranked
No one tell Anna Wintour, but a bunch of famouses broke her "no selfies at The Met Gala" rule. Again. (At least this time they weren't also breaking the actual Met Museum's rule by smoking in the bathroom around the corner from priceless works of art.)
While us spectators were busy playing fashion police from behind our computer screens, the celebrities themselves were taking us along for the ride on social media. WWD broke down the most popular Instagrams of the night, and there are a few surprises. While Kim Kardashian posted up a storm for her 111 million followers, she surprisingly didn't make the most-liked list, despite sharing plenty of photos of her liquid gold Versace dress.
She got a minor consolation prize in that she did make the list of most-viewed videos (with 3,242,060 views) thanks to her mom Kris Jenner's post. She shared good company in the top videos list with Rihanna (4,159,972 views), Zendaya (2,462,265 views), Gigi Hadid (2,290,917 views), and Ariana Grande (1,841,536 views).
Interestingly enough, WWD reports that the "most popular celebrities" on Instagram (those with the most followers) who attended the Met Gala are Rihanna, Kylie Jenner, and Selena Gomez, who, oddly enough, didn't post any images from the gala on her account.
With these omissions in mind, scroll through what did make the list of the top five most-liked Instagrams from the Met Gala, as of 5 p.m. Tuesday.
1. Kylie Jenner with Travis Scott (4,535,229 likes)
Stormi's parents had a date night out in matching Alexander Wang outfits, all in front of 4.5 million fans.
2. Rihanna (4,197,367 likes)
The indisputable Met Gala queen also reigned supreme on social media.
3. Kylie Jenner with Travis Scott, again (4,089,475 likes)
