    Charles Melton Rescued Lana Condor's Purse From The Oblivion That Was Her Met Gala Dress

    To All The Charleses Who've Saved Purses Before.

    Last night was the annual Met Gala! Everyone showed up ready to stunt and serve some campy lewks™.

    One of those attendees was none other than YA sweetheart Lana Condor.

    Pretty in pink.

    Also in attendance? Riverdale's hottest couple, Camila Mendes and Charles Melton, making their Met Gala debut.

    The bone structure between these two can save lives.

    You might be thinking, "OK, so what?" Well, allow me to take you on a little journey of lost purses, fluffy dresses, and a knight in Sies Marjan armor.

    It all started some time after the red carpet, during the actual Gala. Lana Condor realized that her purse was lost somewhere in her dress.

    That's why her dress was so big — it was full of purses.

    They tried to call her phone to see if her purse would make sound, to no avail.

    I thought there was a "no phone" rule at the Met Gala? Oh, well.

    At this point, things were looking pretty bleak. They thought all had been lost! But, little did they know, a handsome hero was in their midst.

    Those cheekbones, my goodness.

    That's right! Charles Melton was there to save the day!

    Charles somehow MacGyvered his way through the trenches of haute couture to find Lana's purse. What a gent!

    And then Charles, Lana, and Cami danced in celebration of the reclaimed clutch.

    Love that for them.

    So shoutout to Charles Melton for being there to save the day! The hero of the Met Gala!
