Met Gala is an annual fundraising event for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. Each year the event invites celebrities on the condition that they follow a dress code. Last year, the theme was Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.
The theme for 2017’s Met Gala was Rei Kawakubo/Comme de Garçons. Comme des Garçons stand for “like some boys” in French and is, in fact, a French company. It is a Japanese fashion label by Rei Kawakubo. Hence, she is the first living designer (since Yves Saint Laurent in 1983) to be the sole subject of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute blockbuster fashion exhibit.
This is one of the most exciting events of art and fashion around the globe as universal celebrities all come together in an abstract and utterly diverse attempt to fulfil the theme of the gala to the greatest extent. Figures have the opportunity on this night to wear once-in-a-lifetime outfits and place themselves in the spotlight.
Below are a few of the looks at the Met Ball 2017 that you need to see.
