MET GALA 2017 – Behind The Scene

Written by Cherilyn Somerhalder, Modified October 24, 2017

Met Gala or the Costume Benefit Institute for the Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of the most talked about events in the entire world. It is not just because of the gala’s cause but because for many years; this event has been attended by some of the greatest names in the Hollywood, business and the fashion industry.

Since the purpose of the event is to celebrate the fashion industry, the highlights of the event also include the fashion that the attendees are sporting. That’s why this event is sometimes also called as the fashion Oscars. With that in mind, I am pretty sure you are dying to know the details of this year’s Met Gala so without further ado, here are some of the things that you should know.

The Who

So who should we expect to see in this event? This is one of the most exclusive events in the world. The final list of attendees has to be approved by the Vogue Editor-in- Chief, Anna Wintour, who has been the chair of the event since 1995.

That’s why you can expect to see only the A-listers like Rihanna, Taylor Swift among many others on the red carpet.

The What

The MET Gala 2017’s theme is Rei Kawakubo/ Commes des Garcons: Art of the in-Between and we will be seeing the works of Rei Kawakubo who is the founder and designer of Commes des Garcons. It has only been two times that the Met used the event to celebrate a living designer.
