The Met Gala red carpet is a spectacle. With attendees wearing their most elaborate gowns, the red carpet (in Tuesday’s case, the pink carpet) is all about being seen. And we tune in via every possible medium and opine about who dressed according to the theme and who phoned it in. Our access inside the Met Gala, however, is far more limited. Anna Wintour – Vogue editor-in-chief/Conde Nast artistic director/Met Gala Empress – has strict rules that limit phone usage inside the event. And while it seems this rule is broken regularly, Thalía completely disregarded this rule and shared several parts of the event through her Instagram stories.

Thalía, who channeled the Bob Mackie Goddess of the Moon Barbie – was living for the camp theme. She decided to document her entire day, including driving by the Met before the event started to her hair and makeup team working on her. And she kept the cameras rolling when she got to the venue, from taking selfies with all the Latinos/Latin Americans (Zoe Saldaña, Maluma, and Salma Hayek) to posing with Zendaya (because her son loves Spider-Man) and Kim Kardashian. She didn’t just stop at selfies either. Thalía also recorded video of Cher performing and Lady Gaga addressing the crowd. And tbh, it was amazing and fun to see how excited she was.
