For those whom are not familiar with the Met Gala (formally known as the Costume Institute Gala, and also known as the Met Ball) is an annual fundraising gala for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. Regarded as one of the most exclusive social events in New York City, it is also an annual celebration for the institute’s fashion exhibit. Since 1995 Vogue Editor-in-Chief, Anna Wintour, has been the chair of the event.
The 2014 Met Gala certainly did not disappoint when it came to all things fashion. This years theme – “Charles James: Beyond Fashion”. This years dress code – White Tie. This years chairs, alongside Wintour, are Aerin Lauder, Bradley Cooper, Oscar de la Renta, Lizzie and Jonathan Tisch, and fashion guru Sarah Jessica Parker.
