The Met Gala is a lavish fashion event hosted by Vogue in May each year to raise funds for 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, which this year was themed “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology”.
