One night of the year when you can be sure that the fashion wouldn’t disappoint you, it’s the Met Gala.
Met Gala, formally called as the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala organized for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. It also serves as the opening celebration for the institute’s annual fashion exhibit. It is one of the most exclusive social events in New York and one of the biggest fundraising nights of the city. In 2013 reportedly nine million dollars were raised through the event. The event attended by famous personalities from the arts, fashion and entertainment, has been held at the Met since 1971 and is one of the most sought after fashion industry’s premier annual red carpet event. This year the gala honored Charles James, a designer known as America’s first couturier who is admired for his sexy silhouettes, by announcing the theme of the event as ‘Charles James: Beyond Fashion.’
Yesterday evening the biggest designers, editors and celebrities came together under one roof to deliver some spectacular ensembles. The 2014 Met Gala red carpet was filled with extravagant gowns, fashionistas and sexy couples that it was hard to just enjoy the beauty and charm of the event. But, that’s what photographs are meant for.
Here are the best shots captured of the eventful night.
