Inside The 2017 Met Gala
All the celebrity fashion & after parties
Affectionately known as “fashion’s biggest night out”, the annual Met Gala in New York City is at the apex of style. Ostensibly a fundraising benefit for the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the event welcomes celebrities aplenty, who mix it with hot young designers and industry legends alike, all there to dress well, drink cocktails and catch up with their fellow famous people at one of the most photographed events of the year. It’s completely and utterly fabulous, but also marks the always anticipated grand opening of the Costume Institute’s annual exhibition.
Suitably, this year’s theme is “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between,” a show that examines the 40 year-plus career of famed Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo. Known for her avant-garde approach to clothing - where the shock and awe factor is always high, The New York Times just labeled her ‘The Nearly Silent Oracle of Fashion’.
