The Met Gala, one of the most important evenings in world fashion, is back, and we’ve seen superstars walk the red carpet in costumes that are as outrageous as they are beautiful.
The Met Gala is a New York City-based annual fundraising event hosted by the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Each year’s fashion display at the Costume Institute begins with the Gala. Each Gala has its own distinct theme, and this year’s fundraiser’s declared subject was American Independence. The different celebrities that went down the Gala’s red carpet chose costumes that were based on their own interpretations of the subject this year. Many, on the other hand, dressed whatever they pleased.

I urge all designers to do the same,” she wrote.
