Forgive me for being slow on the uptake. An evil vermin bug bacteria virus of some sort has invaded my body and I haven’t been able to shake it all week. Thank goodness so many photos of the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institue Gala, which took place on Monday evening, have been floating around to raise my spirits. It’s the fashion event of the century, and even though I was a mess of flu germs, I stayed up late watching the livestream. Every year, the Met Gala celebrates the fashion exhibition at the Costume Institute, which this year is Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations. And also every year, the Anna Wintour-organized event raises millions of dollars for the museum. Individual tix cost up to $15,000, and tables go for up to $250,000. I’m saving up for next year! Here are some Instagram images from the gala that I found particularly lovely and/or amusing. I gotta say I love Instagram. It was pretty great to see Coco Rocha’s shot of her pink hair extensions in my feed, and a few hours later see her wearing them on the red carpet!
For what are IMHO the absolute best photos from the Met Gala, check out Jamie Beck’s images at From Me To You. She’s got a great one of Beyonce with Andre Leon Talley, what a pair.
