A Blast to The Past : Met Gala

Only five days away from one of the biggest events in fashion, the Met Gala, also known as the Met Ball. Starting in 1964, this is an annual fundraising gala which benefits the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute here in NYC. Each year the Met Gala has a specific theme directed towards fashion. I always love watching the red carpet and seeing how amazing celebrities look! This years theme is Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology. The focus will be on machine-made fashion and handmade haute couture. Technology in fashion is definitely a growing topic. I wrote very extensive research paper on it when I was in school and learned a lot. Since I’m getting excited and anxious to see what everyone is wearing on Monday, I figured why not take a look at some of the best dressed from 2011 to 2015!
