Bringing some yes-you-poor-folk-also-could-wear-apropriate-attire-for-a-gala glamour to the Met Gala were model Amber Valletta, singers Jennifer Hudson and Ciara, unknown persons, to us at Mimi Berlin, Hailee Stenfeld, Lucky Blue and Pyper Smith by wearing custom made dresses by the H&M design team. (Sorry, we could’t be bothered to find out who all these celebrities are)
“For the second year running H&M had the privilege of dressing celebrity guests at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit. Taking the theme of this year’s exhibition “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology” as inspiration, the design team at H&M used hand-crafted traditions and cutting-edge techniques and materials to create each of the individual looks. As well as appearing on the red carpet and previewing the exhibition, the guests joined H&M at its table for the benefit gala itself.” (Press H&M)
The Met Gala, or Met Ball (officially named; Costume Institute Gala) is an annual fundraising gala, held on the first Monday in May, for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. It marks the grand opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit This year that’s the Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology exhibit, which “will explore how fashion designers are reconciling the handmade and the machine-made in the creation of haute couture and avant-garde ready-to-wear.” (read more)
But the most important are of course the red carpet images.
