The Met Ball or Gala is the most anticipated fashion event of the year besides international fashion weeks. The event is an annual fashion themed event which takes place at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in New York – its a costume event so its all about the highest form of fashion – wearable outfits influenced by art – so its HAUTE COUTURE all the way.
The event is chiefly hosted by VOGUE and the guest list is approved by Anna Wintour, the editor in chief and artistic director of Conde Nast, publisher of Vogue. Last year, she banned Kim Kardashian from attending.
This year, the theme was based on the punk culture over the years and its influence on fashion today – PUNK: Chaos meets Couture. The Met Gala always coincides with an exhibition at the Costume Institute. High profile celebrities socialites and models alike team up with designers as muses to create the most amazing outfits based on the year’s selected fashion theme.
This year’s event as always, was filled with fashion drama celebrities dressed up in the most fabulous fashion creations. We have compiled a brilliant catalogue of pictures of all the fabulous outfits and the fashion faux pas. Some dresses are so beautiful, detail shots we could find had to be added. From Beyonce’s show stopping train to Madonna’s Jacket only outfit through to Anne Hathaway’s shocking new look(blonde) to Nicole Richie’s blue hair, Katie Holmes’ very beautiful white dress, Miley Cyrus’ mesh dress and Kim Kardashian’s floral dress, there is something for everyone to love or hate.
