Monday night was the party that all fashion lovers talk about, the Met Gala which many have deemed the “Oscars” of fashion.
Technically this fete is a benefit for the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute but for the rest of us this is a celebration of celebrity style in its most creative form gracing the red carpet.
This year’s theme and exhibition is Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between,” was hosted by Anna Wintour (honestly it’s her party), Tom Brady, Gisele Bündchen, Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams with honorary chairwomen: celebrated designer Rei Kawakubo and Caroline Kennedy, the former United States ambassador to Japan. Here we recap some of the most talked about looks of the night.
