Kylie Jenner and Lorde suffered in the name of fashion at the 2016 Met Gala

1. Kylie Jenner's Met Gala dress made her bleed

Kylie Jenner suffered in the name of fashion at the 2016 Met Gala by wearing a dress which made her legs bleed.

The reality TV star made her first ever appearance at the Met Gala in New York on Monday night (02May16) wearing a silver, jewelled Balmain gown with sheer panels teamed with a black bob-style haircut.

While Kylie's dress won over critics and was in keeping with the Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology theme, the heavily-beaded outfit left her with nasty cuts on her legs, which drew blood.

Kylie wasn't afraid to show the downside of fashion's biggest event online and posted a picture of her cut right leg on Snapchat next to her bruised left foot, which had turned purple from her silver sandals.

"When ur dress made you bleed and ur feet are purple (sic)", she writes in the caption.

Luckily for Kylie, she managed to hide her red carpet wounds at the Balmain afterparty by wearing over-the-knee suede boots with a futuristic cutaway minidress and thick metallic belt.

Kylie knew she was in capable hands working with Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing on the red carpet dress. The close family friend sent her sketches based on their initial conversations and she had total faith he would create something special.

“Olivier was really the mastermind behind the dress," she told Vogue.com. “I really trust him when it comes to making a statement on the carpet... I knew Olivier would make me something perfect, so I wasn’t too concerned about the dress."

Kylie had support from sister Kendall, half-sister Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West and her mum Kris Jenner, who had all previously been to the Met Gala. Most of the family also wore Balmain, except Kendall, who wore a cutout Versace gown.

Kris told E! News that Kylie was nervous about her debut and the steps on the red carpet, saying, "She goes, 'Mom, the dress is tight. How am I supposed to get up the stairs?'" © Cover Media

2. Lorde Suffers wardrobe malfunction 

Lorde suffered a sartorial slip up while posing on the red carpet at the Met Museum's annual black tie extravaganza.

The New Zealand-born singer attended the Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology Costume Institute Gala in New York on Monday night (02May16), wearing a tiered tulle confection, which boasted pastel pink, green and blue fabric, designed by Italian fashion house Valentino. However, the movement of the plunging neckline of her gown meant that the 19-year-old gave onlookers a little more than they bargained for - proving that a strip of fashion tape can be worth its weight in gold.

Still, the Magnets singer seemed completely unfazed by her baring moment and carried on along the carpet in her feminine frock, a departure from the black outfits she usually wears when on stage.

Also noticeable during the proceedings was a white plaster cast on Lorde's left forearm, the result of an apparent broken arm. She left fans to speculate about how she came to sustain the injury, with her usually active social media accounts not showing any activity for the past week.

Elsewhere, the main flashing of flesh came courtesy of veteran popstar Madonna.

The singer, 57, made sure she had all eyes on her - and her bottom - at the glitzy event, opting for a very sheer black lace Givenchy ensemble.

In contrast to the other stars who wore metallic accents paired with sleek, slick-backed hairstyles to tie in with the technology theme, Madonna instead teamed her looks with a pair of knee high boots and an intricate headpiece.

Joined by Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci, Madonna proudly posed for photographers with her hands on her hips and a big smile.

According to Vogue, the singer's provocative look was “inspired by the therapeutic kinesiology tape she wears for her fatigued muscles on tour.” © Cover Media
