Last night’s Met Gala was kind of a yawn. Yeah Sarah Jessica Parker rocked a pretty wild headdress, and Beyonce got naked — but really, what else is new?

Unlike 2014’s “Punk” theme, “China: Through the Looking Glass” could have led to some major fashion faux-pas. But in a strange turn of celebrity cultural appropriation sensitivity, things remained relatively inoffensive. But this caution came at the cost of any really striking outfits.

For MOTs, standouts include Lizzy Caplan’s silky peach, Maggie Gyllenhaal’s cutouts and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s slinky number.

In the “what were they thinking” category: Jennifer Connelly. Really? Those shoulder pads?
