A-listers show off their finest threads at the 2017 Met Gala – Take a closer look!
Oscars of the East Coast alias The Met Gala (also sometimes known as the Party of the year), held on the first Monday of May, was a blockbuster show that gave us the golden opportunity to gawk at celebrities as they ascended the Metropolitan Museum of Art with their long trails following them.
This time, they gathered to honour Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo, founder and creative director of Comme des Garçons: Art of the In Between, at the Costume Institute’s 2017 edition. Known for her unconventional silhouettes and unapologetic designs, the guests of the evening were also seen dressed rather alt, avant garde and in unexpected noteworthy outfits.
