Well it’s that time of the year where all the who’s who in the industry (film, music, business guru, fashion) get all dolled up to showcase their over the top outfits for the Met Gala. Every year since 1971 the Met Gala is held in New York City at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Costume Institute. It serves as one of the main fundraisers for the institute while also being the opening celebration for the annual fashion exhibit. Each year a theme is selected and along with Vogue Staffers, Anna Wintour (Editor-in-chief) of Vogue assembles a list of invitees. Tickets this year went for $25,000 which was $10,000 more than last year in order to encourage “more exclusivity and high fashion.”
All of the guests are encouraged to hold to the theme, however many guests often choose to be liberal with the theme and one often sees the result of this on the red carpet. This year’s theme was Charles James: Beyond Fashion. Regardless of the theme or cost the Met Gala is considered, by many, to be the fashion industry’s premier annual red carpet event.
Here are few of my favorite looks that dressed the part to the theme
And to the power couple I thought look magnificent…
