2015 Met Gala Fashion

2015 Met Gala Fashion

We love this time of year because we get to see what celebrities wear to fashions biggest event: The Met Gala. This charity event is held to benefit New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute. Each year, the theme of the gala reflects The Costume Institute's exhibit that will be featured at the museum. This year's theme was focused on "China: Through the Looking Glass." The exhibit "explores the impact of Chinese aesthetics on Western fashion, and how China has fueled the fashionable imagination for centuries." We saw a lot of classic black and navy tuxedos. Celebrities also wore a lot of red because red symbolizes good luck and fortune in the Chinese culture. There were also patterns... and a gold dragon!

Because last year's theme was focused on designer Charles James, many celebrities wore black and white drawn from James' design style. If you missed last year's blog, you can view it now:2014 Met Gala Fashion.
