Fashion Flashback – Best Looks From The Met Gala


The Met Gala, an annual fashion celebration takes place in New York as a fundraising gathering for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. Over the years it has attracted so much glamour from within and without the borders of Hollywood, everyone who is anyone makes their attendance with great élan.

This year’s theme at the Met Gala is going to be Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology. Sounds pretty interesting but difficult to put together. We expect the path-breakers of fashion including Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Rihanna and the whole Swift Squad to shine bright at the red carpet.

The Gala has their theme for the evening every year – from Punk fashion to Chinese couture. We take a look back at Fashion Flashback – Best Looks From The Met Gala, before tonight’s spectacular show.
