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.

A Lesson in Cultural Pride at Kim Shui SS22

"Modeled by a nearly all-Asian cast, the collection is cerebral camp, style with attitude. Retooling costume-y, kitschy symbols of America in jade and silk, Shui flips a middle finger to the entire concept of tropes."

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."
