Taking place every year,  The MET Gala -an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City- is the most prestigious event in the fashion industry. It’s the occasion for many celebrities to shine on the red carpet wearing the latests designs by the trendiest designers.

This edition’s theme was “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between,” and the hosts were Anna Wintour, Tom Brady, Gisele Bündchen, Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams. It makes Rei Kawakubo the second living designer to be given a solo show at the Met.
