MET GALA 2015: China: Through the Looking Glass

The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in New York City. It marks the grand opening of the Costume Institute's annual fashion exhibit. Each year's event celebrates the theme of that year's Costume Institute exhibition, and the exhibition sets the tone for the formal dress of the night since guest are expected to choose their fashion to match the theme of the exhibit.

The 2015 exhibition — also the costume theme for the evening — is called “China: Through the Looking Glass.” According to the museum’s announcement, it “will explore the impact of Chinese aesthetics on Western fashion and how China has fueled the fashionable imagination for centuries.”
