Lily Allen Does The Met Ball Like We’d Do The Met Ball

Her night was well-documented via Instagram, naturally…

Lily Allen's new album Sheezus is out this week, and knowing exactly how to do promo, she went about the Met Ball (sorry, the Costume Institute Gala) exactly how we would, getting selfies with celebs and larking about with Cara Delevingne in the toilets (not what you think, just FYI).

First off, she found ASAP Rocky on the red carpet, posting a photo of them on Instagram with not one, not two, but six aubergine emojis. Though we're pretty sure what they're a euphemism for, Lily's a married woman so we'll give her the benefit of the doubt and assume they were just talking about how tasty a parmigiana would be right now.

Lily then posted a photo of herself with Rita Ora, then hung out with Rita's ex-BFF, Cara Delevingne (who she'd also been spotted with at Karl Lagerfeld's Fendi dinner last week), standing next to her as the model mounted a baby-change facility in a toilet at the Metropolitan Gallery. Lily added the caption 'Nappy change,' but we sincerely hope things weren't that bad for Cara, especially while she was wearing cream Stella McCartney trousers.

Lily also hung out with Donatella Versace ('Donatells'), Taylor Swift, a pouty Kim Kardashian, and Kim's fiancé – and, as Yeezus, the inspiration behind Lily's album title Sheezus – a moody Kanye West.

Then, finishing up, she went to bed just as we woke up – Instagramming, at about 7am our time (2m in New York City), a photo of a great big cheesy (Cheezus?) pizza slice, along with the caption: 'Night x'.

To be honest, if we'd been at the Met Gala, we'd probably have done exactly the same. OK, apart from asking Emma Stone to be our best mate, finding out if Lupita actually enjoyed wearing that dream-catcher dress, asking Lena Dunham for Girls season four spoilers, ogling Blake Lively and having a food fight with Rihanna… but Lily did pretty all right, we think.
