The exclusive New York City Met Gala has truly upped the ante this year, raising ticket prices from $15,000 to $25,000. Every year, the Metropolitan Museum of Art hosts a private gala to raise money for their organization. As one of the year’s most glamorous events, The Met Gala brings in only the most high-ranking attendees.
Such a drastic increase in this years ticket prices can be attributed to a higher fundraising goal and The Met’s desire to keep the event as exclusive as possible. The 2013 Met Gala, “Punk: Chaos to Couture,” captured some of fashion’s greatest moments: Beyonce in the memorable and stunning black and gold Givenchy gown, Sarah Jessica Parker in a Phillip Treacy gown and towering headpiece, Miley Cyrus in a form fitting black mesh Marc Jacobs dress and Taylor Swift finally looking her age in a sophisticated J.Mendel gold and silver embellished black gown. Fashion sightings like these don’t come often, but the increasingly pricey Met Gala ticket stubs insure haute style will continue to grace the red carpet again this year.
