It's the weekend, baby!

With the VMAs and New York Fashion Week in the proverbial bag following a few major shows, headline-worthy events and emerging must-knows, it was time for the next major moment in fashion: the Met Gala.

Celebs stormed the red carpet, yielding shocking lows and the occasional high. Gigi flexed, Kim hid, Timothée slouched, and Justin, uh, really slouched. And Grimes wielded a sword.

As for the actual Met exhibit, we both loathed and liked it.

Meanwhile, Nigo took over KENZO, White Mountaineering collaborated with UNIQLO, Apple dropped a new iPhone, Drake dished new Nocta, LeBron hit the road, and James Bond gear — both bad and good — dropped.

Speaking of drops, Playboi Carti did something.

But in terms of actual drops, we saw new kicks from the likes of National Geographic x Reebok, A$AP Rocky NOAH, Alpha Industries, Nike, and Billie Eilish. And Billie Eilish, again.

Below, relive some of the week's standout moments. If you need us, we'll be logging onto Russia's Grailed.

Spencer Phipps Says Save the Fucking World (& Have Fun Doing It)

“If you can make it fun, you can include people. It's like, 'no, actually, you don’t have to wear naturally-dyed linens for the rest of your life — you can also wear vintage motocross pants!'"

Celebrate 'Schumacher' With Michael Schumacher’s Best Style Moments

"Ah, the pre-iPhone era, how could we forget it? No touchscreens and no Instagram might sound like a nightmare, but the pinnacle of function – wearing your phone as an accessory — is everything but."
