You better believe we love gazing at red carpet look after red carpet look. But sometimes going a little more personal and deeper with our celeb snaps when it comes to big events like last night’s Met Gala is essential. How else will we truly get inside the mind’s of Katie Holmes’ decision to chop off that hair (or wear a wig?!) or figure out what was going through Miley’s mind for that blue hair debut. Luckily we’ve got Instagram to give us all the insight we need on a night of elegance and extravagance. Check out the most double tap-worthy behind-the-scenes snaps from the 2015 Met Gala below.
