The Met Gala returned Monday night with a big, fashionable bang. The memes, of course, were almost as good as the wild celebrity looks themselves. Here are some of our favorites...

Kim Kardashian and Kanye as dementors?

There's fashion, and then there's, uh, what Kim Kardashian and her estranged husband, Kanye West, wore Monday night. Both of them covered themselves in black, with Kardashian wearing a Balenciaga bodysuit and West in what appeared to be a black sweatsuit. The two were quickly compared to everything from the hideous dementor prison guards of Harry Potter fame to the queen alien from Aliens to Darth Vader himself.

Nicki Minaj's cousin's friend did what?

Singer Nicki Minaj wasn't at the Met Gala, but she did tweet about the event requirement that attendees be vaccinated against the coronavirus.

"They want you to get vaccinated for the Met," she said, "if I get vaccinated it won't for the Met. It'll be once I feel I've done enough research. I'm working on that now. In the meantime my loves, be safe. Wear the mask with 2 strings that grips your head & face. Not that loose one."
