Karlie Kloss Gets Her Met Gala Afterparty Dress Cut on Her Body — See Her 3 Different Brandon Maxwell Looks of the Night

05/03/2016 at 02:09 AM ET

Karlie Kloss performed a stylish hat trick at the Met Gala. And it was overall stunning.

The 23-year-old supermodel slayed the fashion prom’s red carpet in three Brandon Maxwell creations. Yes, Lady Gaga‘s BFF and this year’s CFDA Swarovski Award for Womenswear nominee created all three of Kloss’ custom looks for one night.

Kloss kicked off the event by wearing a white gown that covered her shoulders and cinched at her waist. But wait! Turns out her first look was more of a chic coat because moments later Kloss appeared on the red carpet wearing a totally sexier silhouette.

Still in the same color white, her second look featured a choker neckline combined with plunging cutouts along the sides and cleavage area. Her slicked back updo was a perfect neutral hairstyle for her triple transformations.

Following the star-studded soiree that included performances by the Weeknd, it was time for the afterparty. Kloss documented the post-Met Gala fun on Snapchat, explaining to fans that a stain on her fitted column skirt resulted in Maxwell taking a pair of scissors and cutting it into a mini dress!

Soooo… instead of changing into a #MetGala Afterparty dress, @BrandonMaxwell cut my gown into mini,” the NYU student captioned a video posted on Instagram. “We’re drinking and we’re cutting,” Maxwell said in the clip with Kloss responding, “This is a bad idea.”

While Maxwell is the mastermind behind the three designs, credit goes to Kloss’ stylist Karla Welch for organizing this collaboration. “Brandon’s interesting because he cuts on the body,” Welch explained to Vanity Fair about her client’s dress. “Karlie went in, and he put it on the body, and he literally just took the scissors to it,” she continued, also adding that the group actually planned out their concepts via Skype and Facetime, very fittingly to this year’s Met Gala theme: fashion in an age of technology.

Welch also successfully styled Lorde (in Valentino), Olivia Wilde (in Michael Kors) and Michelle Monaghan (in Rosie Assoulin) for the evening.

A team of stylists helped her perfect her look, although the work started long before Monday night’s event. When choosing her dress, she chose a red satin slip dress by Colombian designer Juan Carlos Obando. (She considered wearing the same dress in black, but ultimately that the red popped more.)She accented the outfit with some of the designer’s bold gold jewelry. She finished the look with a pair of Gianvito Rossi heels.

On a night where stars were literally lighting up the Met Gala red carpet, we weren’t expecting a ton of real-girl beauty inspo, but Saoirse Ronan gave us major ponytail envy with her textured (or should we say “tech-tured”) look for the Manus x Machina themed night. However, it turns out the style wasn’t entirely tech-inspired. See below for hair pro Ted Gibson’s surprising inspiration — and an exclusive breakdown of the look.

One of the main aspects that makes the Met Gala the fashion event of the year is the fact that every major style-setter is at the same swanky event and most of the guests have a lot of fun with the theme.

The Most Literal Interpretations of Manus x Machina at the 2016 Met Gala

05/02/2016 at 11:27 PM ET

While the Met Gala is obviously all about the outlandish red carpet fashions, with celebrities opting for the most daring and surprising black tie looks they can find, what truly takes this event to the next level is that each year the attendees are challenged with an all-new theme to sartorially embody. Every star does their best to give an original take on the annual trend, but this year a handful of celebrities went above and beyond, taking Manus x Machina extremely literally.
