Without any doubt, the most important event in the fashion world is the Met Gala, formerly known as Costume Institute Gala which is basically a fundraising event for the benefit of Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in the New York City.
It started off as a simple fundraising event but now it has turned out to be the most luxurious and blockbuster event in the fashion calendar and considered a Jewel in New York City’s social crown.
Each year brings a different theme, one that aims to challenge and inspire the A-list stars in attendance. From religious iconography to innovative headpieces, attendees are dared to commit to being an extra as possible as they climb the iconic staircase to meet their host, Vogue editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour.
This year’s theme was “Camp; Notes On Fashion” which is inspired by Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay in which she described “Camp” as, “a vision of the world in terms of style – but a particular kind of style. It is the love of the exaggerated, the “off,” of things-being-what-they-are-not.”
