Around 7pm tonight, to help get us all in an elegant springy mood, the world of fashion is having one of its biggest nights of the year, the Met Ball. The extravagant ball, that some say is as big as the Oscars, has Vogue as its hostess and is held every year to introduce celebrities and the fashion elite to the opening of the Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s ( or The Met) fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute. One of the most anticipated time of the night is the red carpet event where celebrities and fashion icons are dressed to the nines and show off plenty of glitz and glamor.
Each year the Met Ball has a theme for the fashion exhibit and this years theme, is PUNK: Chaos to Couture. There will be seven galleries dedicated to the innovative fashion era, including garments worn by punk pioneers like The Sex Pistols, designer inspired collections and a punk D.I.Y on how to ‘punk’ your garments up!
So, if you’re on Anna Wintour’s guest list for the night or able to splurge around $5,000-$15,000 for a ticket, great…. and Le Chic is very envious of you. But if you’re more like the rest of us and need to save a few bucks, then you can watch the live stream of the event here.
Now for some of the best looks from last years Met Ball and some Met Ball inspired accessories from our collection, enjoy!
What do you expect to see tonight at the Met Ball?
