Episode 2: The Met Gala: A Global Celebration
Throughout the 2000s, the Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Benefit—better known as the Met Gala— rose in exuberance and notoriety, becoming the Superbowl of fashion. No longer an exclusive evening for those “in the business,” the gala began welcoming prominent artists, entertainers, and politicians alike. The broad spectrum of prominent cultural figures reflected within the pages of Vogue, toed the gala’s red carpet, resulting in record breaking donations for the Costume Institute.
In our oral history we hear about the unforgettable themes that truly make it the party of the year. The Met Gala continues to transform itself into a platform where celebrities and designers push boundaries, stir conversation, while crafting fashion statements that amplify the proposal that fashion is art.
