Best Met Gala bling. Because bling fashion just does NOT get any weirder or more wonderful than this.
Quite a lot of peeps are perplexed by the Met Gala and the outlandish costumes.
And lordy knows Miss Cee sure can understand why.
For a start it looks like a convention for every single one of Effie Trinket’s long lost relatives.
And then there’s the unashamedly elitist atmosphere. It’s SWIMMING in celebrities and Noo Yawk bigwigs. Plus it’s considered THE social event of the year in New York City.
Unless you’re invited, tickets cost about $30000 EACH with about 600 being available.
Actually tickets used to cost
just $20000 each but the organizers decided to jack the price up 50% in order to make the event even MORE exclusive.
Reading between the lines that means nouveau riche types who deplete the free bar by 6:15 p.m. are no longer welcome.
Yes, it’s a fundraiser.
But it’s not benefiting the underprivileged. Or the planet.
Or Miss Cee.
Instead, funds raised go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute. The selfsame institute of which Anna ‘Nuclear’ Wintour is the chairman.
Yes, she of
The Devil Wears Prada fame and a woman so HANGRY-looking that chair legs quiver when she passes.
The theme of the ball changes each year. And by
theme Miss Cee means some cryptic crossword style confusion.
They could make it simple and have a theme like ‘Girl Scouts’ or ‘Inebriation’. Maybe even something like ‘Black and White.
Oh, hang on.
That’s already been done by Truman.
But no. Nothing so simple. Past Met Gala themes include ‘Manus x Machina’, ‘Art of the In-Between’ and ‘Impossible Conversations’.
Frankly, Yours Truly finds EVERY conversation impossible till she’s three drinks in. Can’t imagine having to bling up along those lines.
But to be fair the theme DOES relate to a fashion-related exhibition curated specifically by the Met for the night, and then open to the public for a limited time after.
But you may be just like us and not really care what the background of the Met Gala is. Instead preferring to just get lost in the sheer spectacle of it.
