The Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute benefit is a black-tie event extravaganza that happens every year on the first Monday of May. The goal of the event is to raise money for the Costume Institute, the only department of the Met that funds itself.
The Met Gala is known on the fashion world as the “party of the year” and “the Oscars of the East Coast”. The event is invite-only and tickets start at thirty thousand dollars a piece, and 275 000 for a table. This year, the exhibition was “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between,” and the hosts were Anna Wintour, Tom Brady, Gisele Bündchen, Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams.
Undeniably one of the yearly events to look forward to, there are a lot of fashion expectations with Met gala and this year was no different but even packed with more fashion hits and moments. . Stars like Kim Kardashian played it so safe her outlook was boring but there were other statement outfits like Kendal Jenner ‘s almost naked dress to Rihanna’s breathtaking costume; here are some of the photos.
