The Costume Institute Gala at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art is the biggest event on the fashion fundraising calendar. Founded by publicist Eleanor Lambert, the benefit was first held in 1948 to encourage donations from New York’s high society. In its modern incarnation, the most famous faces from the realms of fashion, film, music and art come together to raise money for the Met’s Costume Institute and celebrate the grand opening of its latest exhibition.

Since 1995, the event has been chaired by US Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, who enlists public figures to serve as the event’s co-chairs. Past hosts have included Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and Marc Jacobs. The Met Gala 2018, which marks the event’s 70th anniversary, will be co-chaired by Amal Clooney, Rihanna and Donatella Versace.


The theme for the 2018 red carpet was “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination”.

The theme was selected to pay tribute to the masterworks of religious art in the museum through the medium of fashion.
