A look back at our favourite MET Gala gowns

In what most consider to be fashion’s night of nights, the 2018 MET Gala is upon us and we couldn’t be more excited! Officially known as the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit, the exclusive affair is always hosted on the first Monday in May to help raise funds for the Costume Institute.

Over the years, an exhibition traditionally accompanies the Gala while doubling as its theme. In 2018, ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’ takes centre stage at the event to be hosted by Anna Wintour, Rihanna, Donatella Versace and Amal Clooney. Tickets individually priced at $30,000 and tables at approximately $275,000, you’d expect flair and opulence like a party with Gatsby.

To fully prepare ourselves for what this year holds, we thought it would be the perfect time to take a look back at the last decade of the MET Gala and its theme. Sit back, pour yourself a champagne and take a glimpse through the archives of fashion’s finest.
