With $11.3 million raised for The Costume Institute, the event was the talk of the town.
On May 6th, the 2013 Met Gala strutted backwards in time to the 1970s in conjunction with the museum’s current fashion exhibit, “Punk: Chaos to Couture.” From grunge to gowns, the A-list guests rocked their sartorial variety. Some of the famous faces at the soirée included Beyoncé (an honorary chair), Sarah Jessica Parker, Marc Jacobs, Diane Kruger, Madonna, Gisele Bundchen, Jessica Biel, Rooney Mara, Anna Wintour, Sienna Miller, January Jones, Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lawrence and Carey Mulligan. Following a seated dinner at the gala’s first all-encompassing dining space, guests cleansed their palates with dessert and live performances by Deborah Harry and Kanye West at the Temple of Dendur. With over 375,000 roses, 325 bottles of champagne and $11.3 million raised for The Costume Institute, the event was the talk of the town. Check out the postmodern-inspired art at The Met until August 14.
