The Met Gala is arguably one of the biggest fashion nights of the year, meaning that for those who are lucky enough to go to the event, fueling up properly is key. And while you might think that fitting into those custom designer gowns means going on a calorie-restricting diet, that's not the case. 

And as is the case with any big night, celebs took to Instagram to share how they're getting ready—including what they're eating. From the uber healthy, like Karolina Kurkova's oatmeal and fruit to Doutzen Kroes's berries and croissant (above) to Amy Schumer's cookie, see what all your favorite Met Gala attendees are eating before they walk up those famous steps.
