If you’re anything like me, then you know that your chances of realistically being invited to the Met Gala are pretty slim.

Still, the fascination continues! Details on what exactly goes on inside the Met Gala are kept pretty tight, but some photos have emerged from this year’s event — “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” — that help shed a little bit of light on what went on:

1.

This year, the Great Hall of the museum had a big ol’ tree in the center:

Then, it appears as if guests walked through a leafy womb to be birthed into the main party room:

This year’s festivities seemed to be in the room with the Temple of Dendur, which you might recognize from When Harry Met Sally:

Obviously, it is a tad more done up here.

Here’s a close-up of the tables, which feature plates that in my peasant brain resemble salami:

And here’s what the room looked like at night! See how those trees glow!

Of course, one of the many perks of going to the Met Gala is that you get a first-look view at the year’s exhibit:

But of course, one big reason why you’re (probably) here is the celebs. Check out the Versace table, which includes Maluma looking like he’s having the time of his life sans red jacket:
