In its cutting-edge incarnation, the most well-known appearances from the domains of form, film, music and craftsmanship meet up to fund-raise for the Met Gala Costume Institute and commend the fantastic opening of its most recent display. The night is focused on the topic of the new display, with past subjects including everything from Manus x Machina and Punk: Chaos to Couture to China: Through the Looking Glass. The current year’s presentation topic is Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.
Since 1995, the occasion has been led by US Vogue editorial manager in-boss Anna Wintour, who enrols open figures to fill in as the occasion’s co-seats. Past hosts have included Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and Marc Jacobs. The Met Gala 2018, which denotes the occasion’s 70th commemoration, was co-led by Amal Clooney, Rihanna and Donatella Versace.
