This is what happened when one man tried to re-create all the Met Gala looks with stuff he found around the house


While the rest of us were busy lusting after Kylie Jenner's bedazzled gown and wondering what on earth Taylor Swift had done to annoy her hairdresser, one man was hard at work making his dream of looking as sassy as Kate Hudson and co a reality, by making a red carpet dress from stuff he found around the house.

Brazilian-based blogger Joao Paulo raided his cupboards for materials to put together his own gala-ready outfit. Who needs Balmain when you've got tin foil, plastic bags and tissue paper?

Nicki Minaj's buckle-heavy gown is just a bin bag and a bit of tin foil away. Failing to fill Miss Minaj's cosmetically-enhanced cups? No bother - a synthetic wig stuffed into your cleavage adds a subtle boost.

Taylor could have saved herself hundreds by nipping down Tesco and grabbing some tin foil and gaffer tape. Avoid the pain and discomfort of wearing high heels by standing on your tip toes in photos. Genius!

Oh Karlie Kloss, you must feel such a fool right now. Paulo works the white cut-out dress with effortless sass.

Kate Hudson's floor-length gown could have proved difficult with all that fancy detailing going on, but Paulo doesn't give up easy. Check out that those skirt blobs. Those are fantastic blobs.

The only thing better than Paulo's outfit is his expression. "It's called fashun darling, why don't you look it up?"
