Met Gala - Main Page 1


It’s the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit, a black-tie extravaganza held the first Monday in May to raise money for the Costume Institute (a.k.a. the fashion department), the only one of the Met’s curatorial departments that has to fund itself.

The theme this year was “Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology”

Kardashian Sisters – I’m usually not a big fan of these girls especially Kim’s red carpet looks but i did like all 3 looks this time. Kim wore a futuristic silver Balmain gown, Kendall wore a cut out halter neck Atelier Versace dress and Kylie wore a silver sheer embellished with Fringe detailing Balmain gown.
