It began in 1948 as a general public 12 PM dinner, and it wasn’t even at the Met. Quick forward 70 or more years, and the Met Gala is something very surprising, one of the most shot occasions on the planet for its mind whirling honorary pathway — however the well known covered strides of the Metropolitan Museum of Art aren’t red all of the time. We’re talking Rihanna as a bejeweled pope. Zendaya as Cinderella with a light-up outfit. Katy Perry as a ceiling fixture transforming into a burger. Too: Beyoncé in her “exposed dress.” Kim Kardashian in a mask bodysuit. Billy Porter as an Egyptian sun god, carried on a litter by six shirtless men. Also, Lady Gaga’s 16-minute striptease.

 

Not to neglect, the Met Gala is as yet a pledge drive — last year the evening acquired more than an astounding $16.4 million for the Met’s Costume Institute. We should likewise not fail to remember that it dispatches the yearly spring design display that carries a huge number of guests to the historical center.
