Also known as the Oscars of the fashion industry, The Met Gala is where fashion is more than just what you wear. It’s art.
For all us die-hard fashionistas, the Met Gala is but a dream.
Although, like all fantasies, there’s always a way to live it… even if it means spending time checking out all the celebrity red carpet looks on Monday night!
The Met Gala is not only for exclusive guests and celebrities to dress in the most outrageous and daring ensembles.
It’s the one night a year where designers and couturiers showcase their artistic and iconic fashion savoir-faire.
