7 Things We Learned About China from the 2015 Met Gala

Chinese Opera is Alive and Kicking
Sarah Jessica Parker surely knows how to wayang. How else can she get through the night with a smile on her face in that look? Chun-Li Rocks
Janelle Monae told Vogue she was going for a yin and yang look. What she didn’t say was she’s a big fan of the Street Fighters. The Most Enduring Thing About the Joy Luck Club was the Word Club
The operative here being ‘club’. The look for these girls – (from left) Dakota Johnson in Chanel, and Grimes and Miranda Kerr in Louis Vuitton – is all about that short, shiny and party dress. Asians Love Sci Fi
Just ask Alicia Vikander in her Barbarella-esque Vuitton number. We Love Veils...
Lily Collins and Vanessa Hudgens obviously were not with the programme. ... and Showing Skin

Model Candice Swanepoel showed off her best assets in this lacey confection by Michael Kors. Simple is Best
Sun Fei Fei channelled Shanghai vixen in Michael Kors. Simple is Best

Ditto for Liu Wen, who was dressed in Michael Kors. Simple is Best
Maggie Q channelled high-end Mulan in this Tory Burch pants suit (and totally kicks butt in it).
