At least it wasn't a handful of his own hair this time

In case you missed it, all the celebs attended the Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (aka the Met Gala) last night – but, unfortunately, our invite was lost in the post.

This year the theme was the definition of extra, with most guests adhering to the ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’ dress code. Rihanna and Katy Perry, in particular, absolutely owned the night with their heavenly outfits.

Check out these sassy AF Met Gala 2018 outfits:

However, some attendees really stretched the limits of the theme and basically just turned up in whatever the hell they wanted.

Including Jaden Smith, who rocked up in a Louis Vuitton coat and his own gold disc as an accessory.

Fans on Twitter had a few things to say about this, understandably.

One wrote: "Lord, please give me the strength to have as much confidence as Jaden Smith at the #MetGala."

Another commented: “I hope I can one day be as extra as Jaden Smith @ the Met Gala carrying around his own gold record for a song where he claims to be an icon living#METGALA18”

Jaden has got form for sporting unusual accessories at the Met Gala. Last year he left everyone a bit baffled when rocked up with a handful of his own dreadlocks. But it turns out there was actually a (kind of) sweet reason behind the hair thing – his younger sister Willow.

Speaking to Vogue's André Leon on the red carpet, Jaden explained: "And since I couldn't bring my sister as a date, I brought my old hair."
