The Met Gala has become an event where the industry’s elite gather in expressive fashions and viral bathroom pictures at the Met Gala museum in New York City. The event is the talk of the internet on the first Monday of May each year. And every A-lister from Beyonce to Taraji P. Henson has graced the carpet in their jaw-dropping looks. While last year’s theme was “Camp” this year’s is titled “About Time: Fashion and Duration.”
Celebrating 150 years the anniversary will follow the history of fashion from 1870 to the present, in what the museum calls a “disruptive timeline.” “This exhibition will consider the ephemeral nature of fashion, employing flashbacks and fast-forwards to reveal how it can be both linear and cyclical,” says Max Hollein, Director of the Met.
The exhibition itself will run from May 7 to September 7, while the gala will be held the evening of May 4.
