When word reached us that Anna Wintour had imposed a selfie ban on the Met Gala, the most glamorous night in the fashion calendar, we have to admit to feeling a pang of disappointment.
Would we have the door of one of the world's most exclusive parties slammed in our face? Never to see who sat with who, who got overly friendly and who behaved badly.
Let's not forget that this time last year the world was reeling over the Solange/Jay-Z fallout - so there's no denying that the Met is an event that isn't just famous for it's spectacular fashion.
But mercifully our fears were unfounded. Because not even the first lady of fashion could stop those selfie loving celebrities from sharing a glimpse of the event with their ever-fascinated fans.
So from Justin Bieber snuggling up to Gaga to Amal Clooney getting fitted out by Galliano to bathroom hangouts to Kim's endless snaps (naturally), we bring you the best of the selfies from last night's Met Gala. Sorry Anna.
