Met Gala The Party Of The Year!

 

Met Gala also known as the Met Ball held the 1st of May, is New York City’s annual fundraising gala for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute.  It is considered as one of the most exclusive social events in New York, attended by personalities from the arts, fashion, high-society, film and music. This gala has been held at the Met since 1946.  Each year a theme of that year's Costume Institute exhibition is celebrated, and the exhibition sets the tone for the formal dress of the night, guests are expected to choose their fashion to match the theme of the exhibit.

This Year’s Spring 2017 exhibit and gala will celebrate the iconic Comme des Garçons designer and press-averse fashion industry enigma Rei Kawakubo. There will be 120 womenswear designs by Kawakubo featured from 1981 to present day, this is only the second designer, after Yves Saint Laurent in 1983, to get a solo exhibit while living.

Last year’s exhibit was “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology,” with honorary chairs to include Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld; Miuccia Prada; and Nicolas Ghesquiere and Louis Vuitton’s artistic director. What does a ticket run for this type of event? $30,000 each, with tables at $275,00!

Here are some captures from previous years red carpet moments.
