Even though Jennifer Lawrence was the co-host of the Met Gala last night, Cher was the breakout star of the evening.
Not only did the living pop legend provide the inspiration for one of the most buzzed about looks of the night—Kim Kardashian‘s revealing Roberto Cavalli gown, which referenced Cher’s first-ever Met look—she also gave one of the best interviews of the night.
It only took 26 seconds for her to outshine famed designer Marc Jacobs and larger than life fashion personality Andre Leon Talley. Because the theme of the evening was China: Through the Looking Glass, Talley thought it would be a good idea to ask Cher about her relationship with Chinese culture. That began and ended with Chinese food, which Cher really likes.
She got so excited when thinking about the cultural food, she optimistically hoped it would be served inside the gala, which Talley broke the news to her, it was not.
