2016-05-04 12.39.05

The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the BEbnefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s Costume Institute in New York City. It marks the grand opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit. Each year’s event celebrates the theme of that year’s Costume Institute exhibition, and the exhibition sets the tone for the formal dress of the night since guests are expected to choose their fashion to match the theme of the exhibit. Each year the event also has honorary celebrity event day chairpersons. – Wikipedia

The Icon Fashion MegaForce, also known as, Anna Wintour has once again outdone herself as Chair of The Met Gala 2016 Fashion Fundraiser. As Chair, she gets to choose her Co-Chairs and those lucky enough to walk the Red Carpet. This year, the two lucky enough to sit alongside Mrs. Wintour would BE, the sumptuous (as some of my lady friends would put it) Idris Elba and his partner in Fashion, Taylor Swift.
