The Met Gala and street style may be opposite ends of the fashion spectrum: one super-thought out, styled, and polished, the other extemporized, raw, and real (at least when we're shooting real NYC girls). But you know here at R29 we applaud and take notes on it all, so we've combined our two loves by actually street style-stalking the Met Gala entrances, and we're sure the up-close-and-personal sartorial details won't disappoint. From Rooney's big entrance to sky-high Loubs, these mini-moments caught our lens before they made an appearance on the red carpet. Hamish, Karlie, Giovanna and yes, you, Ms. Mara, smile (or better yet, smize!): You're on candid Met Gala camera. And, sure, this may not be your regular street style slideshow, but for one curbside night, despite jostling with the paps and screaming fans, it really doesn't get much better than this.
