The red carpet is a jaw dropping spectacular, there is no denying it. However, there’s something even more intoxicating about seeing the aftermath. When celebs let their bedazzled hair down, shrug off their feather jackets and just have a damn good time.

Snaps of A-listers partying after a champagne or ten gives great insight for us armchair purveyors into who really likes hanging out with whom, who is the life of the party and who likes to dress as a hamburger.

Here’s the most incredible images from life beyond the pink carpet…and what we can deduce happened…

FIRSTLy. Bette was there. In a top hat. That’s pretty much all we need to take away from the whole evening. Did she sing? Are Anna Wintour and her friends? Do they have coffee and talk about fashion and how beaches ruins lives? And what is she saying to katy about that chandelier situation?

Miley hit the dance-floor because she is always absolutely the most fun person in the room and I want to be her best friend. She gives zero f’s and parties at the met gala like it’s after-work drinks and someone just put on mr. brightside.

Little did A-Rod know that being asked to take the picture was a total stitch up. Upon review, his arm, chins and face looked warped and 18 times the size of everyone else’s. Kanye laughed (internally), for he had learned this lesson many, many years ago…
