Stars Sparkle at Met Gala
New York, NY—The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala is the top “see and be seen” event of the New York City social calendar, as central to fashion and glamour on the East Coast as the Oscars are to Hollywood. This year’s Gala kicked off the museum’s Spring 2016 exhibit, Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology, which explores how designers are reconciling the handmade and the machine-made in the creation of haute couture and avant-garde ready-to-wear. Made possible by Apple with additional support from Condé Nast, the exhibition opens May 5 and runs through August 14.
The Gala draws both socialites and celebrities—who are, of course, dressed to sell in gowns and jewelry from famous brands. Here’s who wore what:
