The 2017 Met Gala Recap
While the renowned Met Gala is the annual fundraising gala for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, most people call it “The Oscars of the fashion world.”
The invite-only event offers stars the chance to shine. This year’s theme was Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between. Attendees were encouraged to dress in accordance with the theme.
Tickets for the event were $30,000 each and all of the money from ticket sales goes to the Costume Institute. Last year almost $13.5 million was raised.
Here are some of the red carpet highlights from last night:
Kim Kardashian attended with her sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner by her side. No sign of husband Kanye West this year.
Even though Gwyneth Paltrow had once written off the Met Gala as “un-fun” and vowed never to return again, she was there last night for the first time since 2013.
The Weeknd and Selena Gomez made their red carpet debut as a couple.
Jennifer Lopez was there with her new boyfriend, Alex Rodriguez.
And of course Tom Brady was there with his supermodel wife, Gisele Bundchen.
