The Met Gala, which held on Monday saw most of Hollywood entertainers putting their best fashion foot forward.
The gala, which is known as the most fashionable night of the year, is themed, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.
Celebrities put their own spin on the theme with a wide array of fashionable ensembles. The fashion drama began on the stairs of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, venue of the fashion event, where guests swept up the red carpet for their grand entrances.
Met Gala is formally known as the Costume Institute Gala.
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.
