What is the Met Gala?

Monday 6th May, 2019, saw the annual Met Gala (formerly known as the Costume Institute Gala) take place in New York.  This star-studded event always happens on the first Monday in May and raises money for the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  First established in 1948 by fashion publicist Eleanor Lambert as a way to raise money for the museum’s newly-founded Costume Institute and to mark the opening of it’s annual exhibit, the first ever gala event was a midnight dinner with tickets going for fifty dollars each.  When Vogue editor-in-chief Diane Vreeland became consultant to the Costume Institute in 1972, the Met Gala became a much more glamorous affair whilst still being aimed at New York’s social elite.  It was during these years when the event became more celebrity orientated and the themes were introduced.  It was also during this time that the Gala began to be held at the Metropolitan Museum.  By the time Diane Vreeland died in 1989, the Met Gala was well-known as a luxurious blockbuster event.

The guest-list for the Met Gala is usually around 650-700 and each year the event has a theme and includes  both a cocktail hour and a formal dinner.  The guest’s arrive during cocktail hour and walk along the red carpet, before being given an exclusive preview of the Costume Institute’s new exhibition.  They are then seated for the formal dinner with entertainment for the evening usually provided by the music world’s elite.  The theme for the Met Gala directly correlates with the theme of the exhibition and sees the guests arrive in the most weird and wonderful outfits created for them by the world’s top designers.  The outfits are so highly sort after, that the designers often create run-ons of the pieces for retail.
