Met Gala history
Met Gala or Met Ball is the world’s most prestigious and glamorous fashion event. Previously it was known as Costume Institute Gala or Costume Institute Benefit. It is an annual fundraising event for the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The event is held every year on the first Monday of May. The theme for the event was decided based on its annual Costume Institute Exhibition.
The Met Gala was established in 1948 and was nothing more than an ordinary event held for New York charitable Institutions. It was started by fashion publicist Eleanor Lambert who wanted to raise funds for the newly build Costume Institute.
Met Gala’s global existence evolved when Diana Vreeland became a consultant to the Costume Institute in 1972. Slowly the event became a high-profile celebrity-oriented show with attendees like Andy Warhol, Elizabeth Taylor, Diana Ross, Elton John, and many other well-known high-profile personalities.
