The Met Gala isn’t your average red carpet event. It’s a high fashion event where the invited are expected to appear in avant-garde attire, to stand out, and to make an impression.

Every year, the craziness gets worse. Many take the costume theme too far, so there are often more people on the worst dressed list than the best dressed.

It’s pretty obvious though that even the celebrities in attendance want to take a breather from the stifling fashion scene. The next day, most of them opted to wear casual jeans.

See their startling change from red carpet glam to street style normcore:

1. Jennifer Lawrence

Met Gala Attire:

The actress wore a rather disappointing Christian Dior Spring 2015 Couture dress that she teamed up with Roger Vivier’s “Ondulation” sphere sandals.

The Next Day:

It was all comfort for her the next day when she stepped out wearing a pair of black sweatpants, an open back Stella McCartney cashmere and silk blend sweater, a pair of Louis Leeman studded suede leather loafers, and a Coach “Tatum” studded tote.

2. Jaime King

Met Gala Attire:

The 36-year-old successfully flattered her baby bump in an orange Jason Wu for Hugo Boss gown.

She looked even more non-pregnant when she stepped out the next day wearing a pair of ripped jeans, an oversized sweater, a pair of oxford shoes, and a wide-brimmed hat.

3. Poppy Delevingne

Met Gala Attire:

The socialite ironically wore the Marchesa silk poppy flower gown and styled it with a bejeweled Edie Parker clutch.

The Next Day:

After the extravagance of the gown, she looked startlingly simple in a pair of ripped jeans, a bomber jacket, a sweater, and sneakers.

4. Emma Roberts

Met Gala Attire:

The 24-year-old received a Twitter backlash after she posted a photo of herself with chopsticks in her hair.

She probably thought the adornment could cap off her Ralph Lauren green silk gown and Edie Parker dragon clutch to fit the night’s theme.

The Next Day:

This lazy day outfit proved she’s had enough of the fashion scene. She dressed down in a pair of patchwork denim jeans, a pair of loafers, a black shirt, and a black cardigan tied around her waist.

5. Sarah Jessica Parker

Met Gala Attire:

The actress looked outrageous in her H&M dress and Philip Tracey hat.

The Next Day:

It was nice to see Footloose’s Sarah Jessica Parker looking more like her usual self the next day in a pair of grey pants and a slouchy top.

We don’t blame these ladies for the pressing need to dress down immediately after a big event like the Met Gala. The pressure to look great at the event can be tiresome.

It’s always nice to have a good pair of jeans to turn to when one needs to look and feel comfortable. Here are some great examples from Shopbop and Nordstrom:
