After The Met Gala

This year’s theme for the Met Gala was “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons,” celebrating the famous designer to be featured in this year’s Met museum exhibit. The last time the Met featured an exhibit at the museum focusing on a living designer was with Yves Saint Laurent …back in 1983. The Met Gala, what has been called by many “The East Coast Oscars,” marks the opening night of the museum’s exhibit, with the money from the party-tickets priced at what only celebrities could afford-gathered to keep the Met going.
