The 2017 Met Gala is set for Monday, May 1, and as the world waits to see what celebrities will be wearing, it’s worth refreshing your memory before the red carpet is rolled out. The Met Gala, of course, is the fashion-world equivalent of the Oscars—the night when models, designers, and Hollywood stars convene in the year’s most over-the-top looks.
The Met Gala is the Super Bowl of Fashion. It’s always held on the first Monday of May and held at the Metropolitan Meuseaum of Art. The Gala is an annual fundraising gala celebrating the Costume Institute’s magnificent new exhibition on a changing theme. This years theme is The phenomenal Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons. The exhibition will showcase 150 of Kawakubo’s most extraordinary designs dating as far back as the early 1980s. It’s a showcase of fashion as told through the lens of our contemporary culture, and should not be missed.
The Who’s who in all areas of entertainment is invited to the Gala from music, movies, Broadway,and Fashion. Stay and models such as Jordan Dunn, Beyoncé, Lady GaGa, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Kim and Kanye, Andre Leon Talley, Ariana Grande etc. I’m excited to see who will be at the Met Gala on Monday and to see what they will be wearing. Stay tuned for my favorite looks from the Met Gala.
