Ever wanted to see a bearded dragon in a tuxedo? Well, that time has come. 

In honor of the first Monday in May this week, James Corden helped to fill the void from the postponed 2020 Met Gala by debuting a met ball of his own—or should we say pet ball. 

"Being that it's the first Monday in May, tonight would've marked the 150th Met Gala," he explained. "Unfortunately, like so many other events right now, the gala was postponed, so we thought we'd throw our own version of fashion's biggest night showcasing your pets while we're all staying in." So, in perfectly social distanced fashion, pet parents submitted videos for the inaugural Pet Gala of their animals dressed up in looks inspired by what would have been this year's Met Gala theme: "About Time: Fashion and Duration."

Spoiler alert: the results were re-bark-able. 

With Brad Goreski offering commentary with Corden, the two watched as dogs, cats, chickens, guinea pigs and rabbits graced the small screen in their imaginative sartorial concoctions.

From the more traditional red carpet staples like pearls, feathers and sequins to more standout elements like tiaras, clock headpieces and elaborate trains, the animals brought their A-game to the virtual event. 

And, while it was all in good fun, Goreski and Corden didn't miss the opportunity to make some pet-appropriate quips about the occasion. 

As Goreski quipped of one outfit , "I actually heard this look was custom-made by Bark Jacobs."

But, don't just take our word for it—see all of the fabulousness unfold in the video above!
