The 2016 Met Gala, an annual fundraiser for the New York City Metropolitan Museum of Art, was held on May 2. Stars came from all around the country to attend this year's ball, with its formal name as “Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology.” With T-Swifty as the events co-chair, nothing could stop this flow of celebrities from dominating the show.
Again and again New Yorkers will scram to the outskirts of the Met, just to watch the celebrities walk in. Last year Jessie Kaplan ’17 from Trevor Day High School in NYC watched the 2015 Met Gala from across the street, and “ooed” and “awed” at all of the celebrities.
“The other grand allure of the Met Gala comes from the extreme fashion statements celebrities somehow pull off,” Kaplan said. “This is the one event where it is okay to wear a beaded headpiece or rock a metallic bust. The fashion exudes a unique level of confidence that is near impossible to achieve.”
From the A-list celebrities, to the millions of New Yorkers, everyone is excited to see what the designers come up with for this event.
Here is a look at the 2016 Met Gala outfits.
