Blogger recreates Met Gala gowns from tape, paper and foil

It’s Met Gala Monday!

The annual fashion fundraising gala which benefits the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute offers one of the best opportunities for armchair fashion critics to weigh in on their picks and pans of the evening.

This year, the theme for the gala and exhibition is “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology. ”

According to reactions on social media, it was a minefield of interesting wardrobe choices.

Twitter was on fire with images of Madonna, Kimye, Nicki Minaj and several other celebs who led the evening in fashion misfires.

But while some folks were sitting around letting their Twitter fingers do the talking, a Brazilian blogger named Joao Paulo put some action behind his posts by recreating his version of Met Gala gowns out of paper, aluminum foil, duct tape and other materials — almost as soon as they came down the red carpet.

Here is a look at his hilarious handiwork:

His posts got lots of attention on Twitter and Instagram from Met Gala followers who couldn’t believe how fast he was creating his looks. This guy should have been on Project Runway Latin America!

The hashtag #MetGala was top trending in Atlanta (and nationwide) on Monday with almost 2 million total mentions.
