We made it everyone – it’s officially Met Monday, AKA the biggest fashion day of the year. The who’s-who of the fashion and entertainment industries are ready to hit the Met Gala red (or in this case, white, blue, and red) carpet to share their custom looks with the world.
Our minds are swarming with excitement as the 6:30 p.m. EST livestream looms near, but you know we have so many questions that we *cannot* wait to have answered. After all, with so little details released pre-Gala, we can’t help but wonder who’s invited, who will be on theme, and most importantly – who will be the best dressed?
The annual gala, notably held on the first Monday in May, benefits the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in New York City. The infamous event takes on a new theme and co-chairs each year (though IMO, they will never top 2018’s Heavenly Bodies), with this year’s theme being Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty, honoring the life and career of the late Chanel Creative Director, co-chaired by singer Dua Lipa, screenwriter Michaela Coel, actress Penelope Cruz, and tennis star Roger Federer.
