Met Gala 2016 Top Looks
The night of the Met Gala, an extremely important night for everyone in the world of fashion. It's arguably one of the best red carpets of the year. Yes, all the movie award red carpets are jaw dropping but this is different for one very special reason, it's a fundraising event! It's basically a super fancy costume party for those who want to drop $30,000 on a ticket...yes that's right the tickets this year are $30,000. Here's the real kicker, having 30k for a ticket isn't enough, you have to be invited to the gala and Anna Wintour must approve your attendance. It simply doesn't get more exclusive than that. We must keep in mind that it is all for a good cause, last year approximately $13.5 million was raised for the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute.
This year the exhibition is, “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between"(stayed tuned for my thoughts tomorrow). For now, I am taking a trip down memory lane and sharing my favorite looks from last year's gala. Last year's exhibit was "Manus X Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology" and there were some amazing looks. One of the highlights was seeing Kanye west in blue contacts but that definitely wasn't the best look.
