You may be surprised at who got the biggest Instagram bumps from their Met Gala outfits

3 1 0

This year’s Met Gala theme, Camp, sparked a lot of creativity on the red carpet, with celebrities showing up in outfits that took fashion to its very outermost limits. But for an attendee, what is the point of an over-the-top Met Gala outfit? Well, if they play their cards right, they can score tons of new followers.

Just ask Billy Porter. He’s a Broadway actor who had a relatively small following and is best known for his acting in the shows Pose and Kinky Boots. On Monday night, he was carried onto the red carpet on a palanquin carried by six shirtless men. His outfit was designed by The Blonds to conjure up the image of a Sun God and included 10-foot wings and a gold headpiece. That entrance earned him a nearly 20K bump in Instagram followers, a 4.21% bump, giving him a new grand total of 457.9K followers.
