The best part of Ocean’s 8 is obviously the whole “women planning a successful jewelry heist” thing, but the second best part is the surfeit of celebrity cameos. When your movie is set at the Met Gala, the possibilities for surprise celebrity appearances are endless. Here, a (mostly) complete list of everyone who pops up in Ocean’s 8.
1. Kim Kardashian
Kim’s appearance was reported as far back as January 2017, so it wasn’t a total shock to see her walking the red carpet along with Debbie Ocean and company.
2. Kylie Jenner
The more Kardashian-Jenners you invite to your fake Met Gala, the more like the real Met Gala it becomes.
3. Kendall Jenner
See numbers one and two.
4. Serena Williams
Serena missed this year’s Met Gala, but she did attend in 2017 while pregnant with her daughter, Olympia. You can spot her in the movie giving an interview on the gala carpet.
5. Anna Wintour
You can’t have a movie about the Met Gala without an appearance by the woman whose name is literally on the (Anna Wintour) Costume Center, so it’s not really a surprise that the Vogue editor-in-chief pops up in the movie. What is surprising is the way she pokes fun at her own tennis obsession; when she appears on screen, she’s busy watching a Roger Federer match on her laptop when she’s supposed to be working.
6. Gigi Hadid
It’s not a Met Gala without at least one Hadid.
The rapper (and Academy Award winner!) appears on the red carpet, doing an interview ahead of the gala.
8. Katie Holmes
Katie is one of the celebrity guests seated at Daphne Kluger’s table during the Met Gala. She attends with designer Zac Posen, the same person who dressed her for the real Met Gala in 2017.
9. Hamish Bowles
The Vogue editor-at-large appears alongside Anna Wintour to greet guests as they enter the movie’s Met Gala.
10. Lauren Santo Domingo
The Vogue editor and Moda Operandi co-founder appears during the dinner scene at the gala.
11. Zac Posen
Zac appears seated next to Katie during the dinner portion of the Met Gala scene (see number 8).
12. Tommy Hilfiger
The iconic designer very briefly appears in the background during on the gala scenes.
13. Olivia Munn
After the guardians of Daphne’s necklace decide to clear out the room for a search, Olivia appears to ask the guards what the hell is going on. A heist, baby! That’s what’s going on.
14. Maria Sharapova
The tennis star pops up next to Olivia while she’s asking why everyone has to be evacuated.
15. Elliott Gould
Elliott, who appeared in Ocean’s Eleven, Twelve, and Thirteen, reprises his role as Reuben Tishkoff, who financed Danny Ocean’s original heist in the first movie.
16. Shaobo Qin
Shaobo reprises the character of Yen, who appeared in all three of the George Clooney Ocean’s movies. This time, Yen — spoiler alert — comes to the rescue when the ladies need some acrobatic help accessing the Met’s exhibit via the ceiling.
17. Waris Ahluwalia
The jewelry designer and frequent Wes Anderson collaborator appears as a guest at the Met Gala.
18. Dakota Fanning
Unlike most of the celebrities who cameo throughout the movie, Dakota doesn’t play herself. Instead, she plays a younger, cooler actress competing for the chance to be dressed by Helena Bonham’s character Rose Weil.
19. Alexander Wang
The designer appears as himself for a split-second. (This year, he dressed Kylie Jenner for the real-life gala.)
20. Jaime King
The actress and Taylor Swift pal appears briefly during one of the gala scenes.
21. Derek Blasberg
The author and fashion personality pops up as himself during the gala.
22. Adriana Lima
23. Hailey Baldwin
Sadly, neither Justin Bieber nor Shawn Mendes appears with her.
