The Met Gala took place on 6 May,2019 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The exotic night commenced with a cocktail hour, wherein guests walked the pink carpet. They also explored the new exhibition, before sitting down for dinner and the evening's performance. Andrew Bolton, curator of the Costume Institute, played the exhibition around Susan Sontag’s seminal 1964 essay Notes on "Camp"
Cost of the Event
Attending the auspicious event costs heavy on the pocket as it was INR 30,000 per person ($275,000 per table). This included the entry ticket and adjoining a designer gown and some gaudy jewellery would make it a really expensive evening!
As per the latest tweets Laura A Harris said, “The theme was "Camp"... I don't know what that even means (and apparently people on the internet don't either) but let me just say... THESE. DRESSES. ARE. AMAZING!” Cosmopolitan tweeted, “Fashion but make it LOL. (These are so great!)”
The pink carpet witnessed Deepika Padukone wearing a custom metallic pink gown and opted for a high puffed ponytail to complete her Barbie look. The actress played safe by dark lip color and matching eye make-up accomplished with glitters. For Priyanka and Nick, it was their first outing at the MET Gala as a married couple where Priyanka wore a custom-made silver Dior gown, with colorful ruffled feathers, a very high leg split, a matching cape along with her big hairstyle that included a crown on top. Her hubby looked stylish in a white tuxedo and glittering silver Christian Loubout in heeled shoes. Actor Michael Urie went for two looks in one.
The show was also attended by Serena Williams (the co host), Lady Gaga, Janelle Monae ,Harry Styles and many more international divas.
