Every show-stopping look with a story to match
Every first Monday in May, the most influential figures from all corners of pop culture are invited to walk the red carpet of the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute fundraising Gala. Dubbed the Met Gala or Met Ball, the event celebrates a particular theme each year, inaugurating the Met's new fashion exhibit. Designers and their muses unionise in finding an unforgettable look that also follows the theme of the event. Many invitees use the haute couture formal dress-code as an opportunity to create a look unlike nothing we've seen before. From 10-foot trains to holding your own hair as an accessory, the best looks are truly the ones with a story behind them.
