The Met Gala, aka the Met Ball or Costume Institute Gala (or aka the gala where the fashion magic happens).
So we know that we just had some major fashion moments at the Oscars recently, and it’s more than six weeks left until its happening. But folks, if it’s one gala we could go on and on about it’s the Met Ball. It’s the social (and kind of fashion) event of the year in New York and has all the fashion people and a-list celebrities gathered under one roof. The Met Gala is a fundraising gala for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s fashion department. The event also sets the start for the year’s Costume Institute exhibition, that each year contains a specific theme the guests are expected to match with their formal year.
And frankly speaking, we’re not sure what’s most thrilling. The fashion itself or to see how the fashion people and celebrities have interpreted the theme. A few years ago the theme was Punk, last year it was China: Through The Looking Glass and this year it’s Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age of Technology. So yes, it’s completely understandable that we’re head over heels over this year’s exciting theme and can’t bare ourselves to this year’s Met Gala. Could we please have some high fashion technology involved and a futuristic feeling we’re more than pleased.
So the Met Gala is definitely our spotlight of the week!
