Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Every good party has a photo booth; Vogue's is just far fancier than anything you've ever seen before. For the "Manus x Machina" Met Ball, the magazine hired one of its favorite directors, Gordon Von Steiner, to shoot a series of short, well-lit, dynamic, FUTURISTIC, and playful Instagram videos. The clips allowed each insanely famous guest to showcase a little personality (or, in some cases, a lot of personality). Even though nobody asked us to, we gave them awards. Find the cream of the very hot crop below.
