The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala is an annual fundraising gala for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York. It marks the grand opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit.
Each year the Gala celebrates the theme of that year’s Costume Institute exhibition. It sets the tone for the formal dress of the night and the celebrity guests choose their attire to match the theme of the exhibit.
It’s actually also known as ‘the party of the year’ and ‘the Oscars of the East Coast’ mainly down to the big celebrity names that turn up. So lets take a look at our picks of the best and worst looks from the night…
Loveeee a big, bold skirt. This shade of pink is everywhere at the moment it’s such a pretty summer pink.
Love this fishtail shape it definitely suits her.
She usually gets it so right but this is sooooo wrong.
This is our FAVE look from the night. The combination of the gold and blue colours are simply gorgeous and the feathered blue trial is stunning. PLUS her hubs Ryan Reynolds had a matching blue bow-tie on. CUTEEEE!
Is this a sari? Is this a suit? What is it?!
Can’t really go wrong with a stylish black number plus the added ruffles add a nice contrast.
The word tacky comes to mind.
This is such a effortlessly chic look. It looks so light and fuss-free.
It might be hideous but it does look kind of comfy.
