Happy Monday fellow fashion style moguls? Or should I say happy end month?
The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. It marks the grand opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit. Each year’s event celebrates the theme of that year’s Costume Institute exhibition, and the exhibition sets the tone for the formal dress of the night since guests are expected to choose their fashion to match the theme of the exhibit.
Each year the event also has honorary celebrity event day chairpersons. The affair is attended by personalities from the arts, fashion, high-society, film and music, has been held at the Met since 1946 and is considered to be the fashion industry’s premier annual red carpet event. Its red carpet fashions are widely photographed, reviewed, critiqued and emulated. Each year, there is always a theme and a ticket goes for $25,000.
The annual guest list includes only 650–700 people. Anna Wintour, Vogue editor-in-chief and a chair of the event since 1995, oversees both the benefit committee and the guest list, with Vogue staffers helping assemble the list of invitees. In 2015 Met Gala, Rihanna was the best dressed celebrity in my opinion!
She arrived in a canary yellow gown that stretched out for miles, sweeping over the red carpet as she made her way up the steps. It is so Rihanna to make a statement at the Met Gala and I am obsessed with this look, especially because she wore a Chinese couturier! The Chinese designer Guo Pei took 2 years to hand stitch the dress, leave it to Rihanna to never disappoint.
Other best celebs were Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, Karolina Kurkova, Kerry Washington and Jeniffer Lopez. Who were your best dressed? Check out here and lemme know. I challenged myself and did a met Gala theme red carpet look, do we love it or do we hate it? Lemme know on the comment box below!
