The Costume Institute Gala took place this past Monday, and the celebrities did not disappoint when it came to the fancy frocks and shiny baubles.
The Costume Institute Gala (or Costume Institute Ball), for those who aren’t aware, is known as the Met Ball and nicknamed the “Oscars of the East Coast”. It happens every year and is thrown to celebrate the annual opening of the Metropolitan Museum’s, AKA The Met, fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute. The red carpet evening gives many celebs the opportunity to come out dressed to impress. It’s been described as the fashion industry’s “Night of Nights”, and is regarded as the top annual social event in New York City.
Every year there’s a different theme, this year’s theme I’m not even going to share. Just know that it was full of designer names that the average person doesn’t know and a metaphor that’s too deep for it’s own good.
So as you can see, this ball is the shizz-nit, and celebrities take it as their opportunity to go wild. The fashion is exquisite, and if you’re even the slightest bit artsy, you’ll enjoy the fashions just like I do. Flip through and check out the best and the worst outfits from this year’s gala.
