Met Gala 2017..in review

It’s Herrrre! The  annual Met Gala is in full swing tonight and if you’re looking for a little 411 on the event before we get down to the nitty gritty aka fashion here’s the brief bio……

The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. It marks the grand opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit. Each year’s event celebrates the theme of that year’s Costume Institute exhibition, and the exhibition sets the tone for the formal dress of the night, since guests are expected to choose their fashion to match the theme of the exhibit. Each year the event also has honorary celebrity event day chairpersons

This year the exhibition is “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between,” and the hosts are Anna Wintour (the gatekeeper for the gala), Tom Brady, Gisele Bündchen, Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams; the honorary chairwomen are Ms. Kawakubo and Caroline Kennedy, the former United States ambassador to Japan

Now that I’ve got you up to speed I KNOW you just want to know who wore what. Bearing in mind that I can’t feature everyone…here are a few of the stand outs and might I just say that once again Rihana has a “subtle way” of expressing herself. The girl is fearless.
