2018 Met Gala

The 70th anniversary of the Met Gala was held last night in beautiful New York. The Costume Institute Gala at New Yorks Metropolitan Museum of Art is the biggest event on the Fashion fundraiser calendar. Founded by publicist Eleanor Lambert, the benefit was first held in 1948 to encourage donations from New Yorks high society. Now a days, the most famous faces from fashion, film, music and art come together each first Monday in May to raise money for the Met's Costume Institute and celebrate the opening of it's latest exhibition. This year's theme is the Mets most controversial one yet, the theme is Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. 

Anna Wintour announced named her co-hosts fort he evening, who are none other then Amal Clooney, Rihanna and Donatella Versace. 

Unfortunately as every year there were only a select few that followed the theme. This is the Fashion event of the year and when you have Fashion and Art mixed together the guests should take risks, rather then stay safe. A few styles made my jaw drop, but mostly styles were safe and boring. The carpet was filled with gowns that were gold, silver and white. I think the biggest question of the night however was, where is Lady Gaga and the Beyonce?!?! The Gala was most definitely missing these two its was not the same with our them!

Keep in mind the theme of the Gala is Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination. So lets see who actually took a risk and kept to the theme and who went to safe shall we...
