Chengdu aviation graduates hold Met Ball-like gala event

Students at an aviation college in Chengdu celebrated their graduation by holding a gala event, complete with reporters and camera-wielding fans.

Female students were driven in luxury Porsches and Maseratis, and upon arrival, were greeted by their equally well-groomed male counterparts.

Already employed by various Chinese aviation firms, the graduates used the occasion to sashay down the red carpet and have their time in the limelight.

Their attire was reminiscent of the Met Ball in New York, as some of the female students' dresses ranged from graceful and elegant to very revealing.

Thankfully, there were no repeats of Rihanna's dress or Sarah Jessica Parker's outrageous headgear - likely because those were gleefully photoshopped and mocked online.
