While the 2016 Met Gala red carpet may be over, let the memes begin! There are some hilarious ones already hitting the Twittersphere, especially about Zayn Malik resembling the Winter Soldier and Kim Kardashian’s large silver derriere looking like a blown up tin of Jiffy pop!
Now that we know who the best and worst dressed celebs at the Met Gala are, we’re getting our first taste of the priceless memes to come out of the big event! Kim Kardashian‘s giant silver rump and Zayn Malik‘s arms of armor are already the biggest hits on social media.
With the theme of the night being “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology,” many stars took that to mean wearing shiny silver outfits and accessories and that made for plenty of crazy comparisons on Twitter. From everything to Hershey’s Kisses to robots, our favorite stars had some fun poked at their red carpet outfits.
With outfits to even hairstyles, the more futuristic celebrities would try to be, it seemed the more they got called out for trying to embrace the look of the evening. Hands down Zayn was everyone’s choice for ribbing, with his shiny metal arm sleeves being compared to everything from the Winter Soldier to a Mortal Kombat character to even Robocop! We thought he looked super stylish, but the internet just couldn’t help themselves when it came to finding laughs at the singer’s expense. Stream Zayn’s music, completely uninterrupted and ad-free, RIGHT HERE.

Lupita Nyong’o‘s green Calvin Klein dress was lovely, but her giant antenna of a hairstyle made for some good jokes.

Rita Ora, 25, looked stunning in a silver cutout dress that features a giant train of feathers. Unfortunately, some thought that it looked like a feather duster that you’d clean furniture with!
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of the futuristic outfits tonight? Any other besides Zayn and Kim that are meme worthy?
