The Met Gala is called the “Oscar of the East coast” or “Super Bowl in the fashion industry”. Traditionally the dress code is set by the theme of a new exhibition.

This year the entrance fee to the event costs $ 30,000 and a seat at the table at the Banquet will cost $ 275,000. This does not mean that each guest pays for attendance at the Ball. Usually celebrities take the brands and put them in your Desk. It is important that everyone wore different colors. The guest list and the seating chart says personally Anna Wintour.
