The Met Gala, or the Met Ball, formally called the Gala Costume Institute or Costume Institute of Benefit, is one of the most prestigious event in the fashion world. Every year, fashion enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting this event, especially to which of the invited celebrities hit the mark with their creative costumes and which miss it. Unlike Oscars where fashion statements are mostly chic and sophisticated, Met Gala allows celebs to go wild and lets designers show their imagination and abstract creativity.
This Gala is an annual charity event held for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. The event invites celebrities from various fields such as fashion, film, television, music, sports and social media to an event organized by the American fashion magazine Vogue.
Like every other year, the Met Gala event saw a throng of celebrities this year. Some regular faces like Kim Kardashian to Bella Hadid, Nicki Minaj to Cardi B were curating their costumes. However, this year, unexpected guest was Hillary Clinton, who attended the event after 21 long years. She boasted a Joseph Altuzarra gown featuring 60 women’s names like Rosa Parks, Lady Bird Johnson, and Clinton’s mother, Dorothy Rodham.
