From the date to the theme and everything else in between, here’s all you need to know about the Oscars of the fashion world: the Met Gala 2018.
The Costume Institute Gala at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art is the biggest event on the fashion fundraising calendar. Founded by publicist Eleanor Lambert, the benefit was first held in 1948 to encourage donations from New York’s high society. In its modern incarnation, the most famous faces from the realms of fashion, film, music and art come together to raise money for the Met’s Costume Institute and celebrate the grand opening of its latest exhibition. With previous themes encompassing everything from Manus x Machina, Punk: Chaos to Couture to China: Through the Looking Glass, this year’s exhibition theme, Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Chatolic Imagination amazed us all with daring outfits and strong colors.
