The Met Gala

The Met Gala

The gala is a fundraiser dedicated to New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute – formally named The Anna Wintour Costume Center, in homage to the American Vogue's editor-in-chief, who has been a chair member of the museum's gala since 1995.

The benefit founded in 1948 by publicist Eleanor Lambert was to encourage donations from New York's high society, and happens on the first Monday of May.

The Chair Members

The Chair Members

Other than Anna Wintour, each year the event brings honorary chair members. The late Karl Lagerfeld and Gianni Versace were the first designers chosen to co-chair the night, in 1995.

Since then, among many designers and fashion insiders, the gala has also made room for celebrities (and even royalty) to participate: Caroline Princess of Hanover was a chair of the 2005 Met Gala, Beyoncé was a chair member in 2013, and last year saw Rihanna, Amal Clooney and Donatella Versace co-chairing the event. Donatella is also a sponsor of the exhibition.

How To Get A Ticket To The Met Gala

How To Get A Ticket To The Met Gala

Without being an actress, model, musician, Vogue editor, A-lister's plus one, or wealthy enough to donate hundreds of thousands to the Met Museum and become a sponsor, it's not easy.

Tickets go for approximately £23,000, while tables cost £211,000 – and that's before you get your hands on a Met-worthy designer dress costing around $30,000.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
