Amy Schumer is the newest member of Alexander Wang's cool girl squad. The comedian and actress arrived at the 2016 Met Gala red carpet in a vibrant red gown by the designer who is known for his DGAF collections and "bad girl" vibe.

The dress surely gives off the sexy attitude one would expect from a Wang piece, with its chainlink straps and cutouts. She finished off her look with a studded red bucket bag similar to the ones the designer sent down his recent Fall 2016 runway.

And while Schumer may not seem like the most expected Wang date (the designer's previous dates included Taraji P. Henson, Kristen Wiig, and Julianne Moore), she certainly has the DGAF thing down pat. Earlier on Monday, she Instagrammed a photo of how she preps for one of the biggest fashion events of the year:
