Formally called the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, The 2017 Met Gala was held Monday night in New York City. An annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York, the 2017 event was themed to celebrate designer, Rei Kawakubo and her iconic brand, Comme des Garçons.
