The first Monday in May taught us that Jaden Smith is capable of making an accessory out of his own hair and that Sarah Paulson is Madonna‘s biggest fan.

We rounded up seven of our favorite moments from the 2017 Met Gala, from couple red carpet debuts to candid celeb reactions that were fortunately caught on camera.

Sometimes celebrities just want to kick back and relax while enjoying events without having to do much, like the rest of us do. Sean Diddy Combs reclined on the stairs of the Metropolitan Museum of Art while his girlfriend Cassie posed for photos. He must have taken notes from John Legend and Chrissy Teigenat the Golden Globes.

#2. Ryan Reynolds Said Some Really Sweet Things About Blake Lively

Ryan Reynolds was interviewed by the popular Instagram account @humansofny and complimented his wife Blake Lively on her best qualities:

“She always responds with empathy. She meets anger with empathy. She meets hate with empathy. She’ll take the time to imagine what happened to a person when they were five or six years old. And she’s made me a more empathetic person. I had a very fractured relationship with my father. Before he died, she made me remember things I didn’t want to remember. She made me remember the good times.”

#3. J-Rod Made Their Red Carpet Debut as a Couple
