The Symbolism of the Met Gala

The annual Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Met Gala is unarguably the biggest and most publicized party of the year. It's one of a kind, although it's one of many events that make us commoners inwardly viciously living through our social media (or rather, the social media of others). But it's not just a party. The Met Gala isn't just a fun night for celebrities and cool people to socialize. It's a strategically planned symbol of the times. Pop culture at its most concentrated. If you're at the Met Gala, congratulations, you've made it. You've made it among the most influential people in pop culture, whether you're an icon or the one who decides the icons. No, the Met Gala doesn't discriminate against neither the performers or the critics, but its only rule is that you must have some sort of impact on pop culture. Unless, of course, you're willing to pay the $25,000 for a ticket.


The type of smile that can only come from a dermatologist...

I was also in pajamas during the Met Gala, although mine weren't nearly as photogenic.

Am I the only one who can only think of Eddie Redmayne as Marius from Les Miserables?


Absolutely love this look.
