LIFE GOAL: MAKE IT TO THE MET!
The MET GALA that is…
Any fashion lover knows that the first Monday of May marks the day in which the iconic Metropolitan Museum of Art opens it’s doors for the annual invitation-only Met Gala; a fundraiser to benefit the museum’s Costume Institute as well as a celebratory launch party for it’s spring exhibition.
It’s truly a special occasion in the fashion industry, as a night in which the art of fashion and those behind the wonderful designs are truly acknowledged.
And of course, as each year has a specific theme for invited guests, the best and brightest designers and stars of the moment all gather at the museum to celebrate the name of fashion and display their beautiful creations.
Last year, designers donned their desired celebrities in custom ensembles that fit their own interpretation of the “MANUS X MACHINA: Fashion in an Age of Technology.” My favorite thing about the MET Gala is just that. Seeing all of the different ways in which designers interpret the very vague theme curated by Vogue’s Anna Wintour as well as the director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute.
As I cannot wait to see what designer’s have in store for tomorrow’s celebration honoring Comme des Garçons’s Rei Kawakubo, I sorted through last year’s ball and selected some of my favorite looks! Which look was your favorite?!?
P.S. Ms. Wintour (or any designer really), please invite me, as my invitation must have been lost in the mail! It would truly be a dream come to true to walk those iconic steps!
