58 Met Ball Photos You HAVEN'T Seen

Photographed by Erin Yamagata
For every puffed-out chest (and derriere) photo you saw from last night, there are a hundred outtakes with closed eyes and stepped-on trains. We're not here to blow up anyone's spot — we'd be the first to face-plant on those stairs! — but we do want to celebrate the quieter, less photographed moments that lead up to the red carpet.

So, we've compiled a collection of photos you haven't seen yet. From arrivals, to waves, to Justin Beiber getting his hair sprayed in between his car and the carpet, these are the details that'll make it feel like you were really there. And, if anyone asks, you kind of were.
