At this year's event on Monday evening, most stars seemed (unsurprisingly) to be confused with this year's theme, "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology," with attendees like Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and Taylor Swift opting for safe metallic silhouettes.
Lupita Nyong'o, on the other hand, took a beauty risk. And boy, did it pay off.
Many claim the Star Wars star had one of the best looks of the night.

THE HAIR, YES! I'm not even worthy of living on the same planet as Lupita. #MetGalahttps://twitter.com/marieclaire/status/727294319372062720 ...https://pbs.twimg.com/media/ChfeVDBUgAA9UQ4.jpg:large

As with any daring look, not everyone was into the sky high 'do.
Lupita is stealing the hair style from Marge Simpson. Lol.https://twitter.com/CapriHakeem/status/727292329569226752 ...https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Chfcgh0W4AAI874.jpg:large
Whether you love it or hate it, at least Nyong'o tried to make a bold statement — unlike most of her fellow silver-wearing celebs.
While you sit and rank all of your fave and least favorite looks from the night, we'll leave you with this:
