    At least Bill and Ben know what avant garde is.

    Kylie Jenner could never.

    Are... are those platforms he's wearing? Iconic.

    5. Oakie Doke taking Spring/Summer literally and wearing head to toe foliage.

    The Met Gala has never seen such high levels of edgy glamour.

    6. Peggy Mitchell letting you know she could have been a Bond girl if she wanted but being the most badass landlady and matriarch in existence is more important.

    BBC

    7. Basil Brush serving foxy glamour with a hint of "my father's a lawyer so watch what you say".

    Basil Brush

    Basil is always dressed for a formal occasion so going to the Met Gala would be like popping to the shops for him.

    8. Ron Weasley honestly owning ruffles at the Yule Ball.

    Warner Bros. Pictures

    Tbh Harry Styles has probably already worn this look.

    9. Winnie-the-Pooh showing us that you should never be afraid to show too much skin/fur with a red crop top, and a red crop top only.

    Disney

    10. Raven totally pulling off feathers and biker gloves while staring into your soul.
