Serena Williams’ Pregnancy, Red Carpet Roach & Kitty Couture: Five Unforgettable Met Gala 2023 Moments
While the Met Gala is a glamorous and ‘rich life’ event, not everyone who attended last night fits that category!
A cockroach surprised guests and media as it crawled across the carpet. It’s unclear where the unwelcomed guest came from, but the moment, captured on camera, had people in tears online.
The critter even dared to try to climb a photographer’s leg.
Only in New York.
