Met Gala: The #FDRIVES Best Dressed
May 3, 2016
The first Monday in May appropriately marks the biggest night in fashion, The Met Gala, held at the Metropolitan Museum in New York City. Hosted by chairperson Anna Wintour, it is considered to be one of the most exclusive social events in the city and one of the biggest fundraising nights.
Each year a theme is presented by the Costume Institute, reflecting a dominant influence in the fashion industry. The theme of this year’s Met Gala was “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology; ‘Manus’ and ‘Machina’ are Latin for ‘hand’ and ‘machine’. To elaborate, according to Vogue, the exhibition will focus on “the dichotomy between handmade haute couture and machine-made fashion”.
Every year it is enticing to see which of Anna Wintour’s handpicked guests will follow the theme and stand out for fashion’s biggest night.
