Ah the Met Gala. What a perfect excuse for A listers to flaunt themselves on yet another red carpet.
However, the Met Gala is slightly different to other red carpet events. The annual benefit for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute sees celebs dress to match the theme of the event, which is set by whatever exhibition is opening that night. This year’s theme played tribute to Rei Kawakubo, the design genius behind Comme des Garçons and was officially titled “Art of the In-Between” and as always, has brought out some fabulous if not eccentric red carpet looks.
To be honest it’s without a doubt my favourite red carpet event. I love seeing celebs interpret the theme and veer away from their normal red carpet attire. So in my own celebration of the Met Gala, I’ve complied my absolute favourite looks from the night.
