Met Gala 2019

What is the Met Gala?

The Costume Institute Gala at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art is the biggest event on the fashion fundraising calendar. 

Founded by publicist Eleanor Lambert, the benefit was first held in 1948 to encourage donations from New York’s high society. 

In its modern incarnation, the most famous faces from fashion, film, music and art come together to raise money for the Met’s Costume Institute and celebrate the grand opening of its latest exhibition.
