One day: Beyoncé’s fast Met Gala turnaround

Interesting fact of the day: Beyoncé’s 2012 dress was one of the fastest turnarounds in Met Gala history. On the day of the event, the singer called up her stylist and had decided that she fancied going to the red carpet ceremony (as you do).

Behold, the ultimate Met Gala by numbers.
