Met Gala Looks that Stole the Show

Since 1946, celebrities, workers at Vogue, sponsors, and those willing to beg Anna Wintour and fork up $25k for a ticket spend one night at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. This is an annual fundraising gala that marks the grand opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit. Each year, the gala has a specific theme for the exhibit and attendees are expect to dress according to said theme.

          From, “Fashion Dolls: The Survival of Haute Couture” to “Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age of Technology”, the gala is a night for attendees to have fun and see how creative they can be with the theme. Here are five celebrities who definitely dressed to theme in past Met Galas.
