Stars following the Dress Code VS Everyone else.
Everyone is talking about the Met Gala. But not everyone knows what’s beyond the hype and mundane.
Considered the “jewel in New York’s social crown” the Met Gala began in 1948 with the intent of raising money for the new Costume Institute of NY. But it was in 1973 that the Met Ball became social thanks to the former editor-in-chief of Vogue America and “special advisor” to Costume Institute Diana Vreeland, who introduced the dress code: a theme to be followed religiously.
Who has the honor of receiving the invitation, the first thing to pay attention to is that small writing at the bottom of the paper: its size is small but it is of fundamental importance, it is the theme that characterizes the party.
