Theme for Met Gala 2017

Started in 1946, the Met Gala is not just a sartorial heaven for fashion fans, but also a fundraising event for the benefit of celebrating the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Each year, the event announces a unique theme which the celebrities try to incorporate in their outfits.

Hosted by Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams, this year's theme recalls Japanese fashion designer Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons. The exhibition will display 150 designs by the legendary designer.
