From the theme to the guests, to the cost of the tickets: here is everything you need to know about the Met Gala 2017

The Met Gala is one of the most anticipated glamorous events of the year, especially for red carpet lovers, since the stars give their best in unusual and curious dresses chosen according to the theme that changes from year to year.

The Gala, in fact, is a fundraising evening for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in New York, organized on the occasion of the inauguration of the annual fashion exhibition, which is dedicated every year to a different prominent figure, to a event or a trend that changed the fashion system.

Every year, it is an opportunity to see stars from the world of music, cinema, culture and entertainment gathered together, with a red carpet second only to that of the Oscars.

What you need to know about the 2017 Met Gala

As always, there will be a very respectable line up. This year the director of Vogue America, Anna Wintour, will take the stage, who will do the honors, along with Pharrell Williams and Katy Perry, with Kawakubo who will assist in the chair of honor.
  • The guests Unless you are a world star (or are engaged to one of them), a philanthropist or a friend of Anna Wintour, your chances of participating are very slim. And if you're thinking of going to charity to sit next to Kim Kardashian or David Beckham, you should probably sell your house to do so.
  • For a couple of years, Wintour would have banned the use of sticks and phones to take selfies during the evening. This rule, however, is almost always circumvented by the stars, who cannot hold back and take advantage of every moment on the sidelines to share moments of the evening on social networks (usually in the car before arriving or in the bathrooms of the Met). It seems that the director of Vogue America has also prohibited caterers from preparing bruschetta and foods with parsley, too complicated to manage for a gala evening.
