Photographer Noam Galai captured celebrities between posed takes at the Met Gala 2018 last night, roaming the museum’s crowded steps to shoot candid moments amid the flashing cameras. The images look more authentic than photos we typically see on the red carpet. Couples like Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost exchanged knowing glances. Miley Cyrus held hands with Salma Hayek, and Stephen Colbert goofed off with Jimmy Fallon.
Scroll ahead to see hidden scenes from the Met Gala red carpet: a striking shot of Katy Perry’s angel wings, Kesha Ward with 2 Chainz right after he proposed, and and Black Panther star Letitia Wright with John Boyega.
