The great and the good at the Met Gala

‘It’s like a Fellini movie,’ Madonna once said of the Met Gala, ‘be­cause it’s the best and the worst of every­thing in life.’ In truth, most peo­ple’s idea of la Dolce Vita prob­a­bly doesn’t in­clude pay­ing more than $30,000 to at­tend a fancy-dress evening with Ivanka trump and Justin Bieber. But for fash­ion­istas and celebri­ties, at least, New York’s Met Gala – held an­nu­ally at the Metropoli­tan Mu­seum to raise money for its Cos­tume In­sti­tute – is as un­miss­able as their weekly colonic. this year’s event, the theme of which cen­tres on the ‘wearable anti-fash­ions’ (sounds doable to me) of Ja­panese de­signer Rei kawakubo and her la­bel Comme des Garçons, comes weeks af­ter white smoke was seen plum­ing from the chim­neys of Vogue House in lon­don, an­nounc­ing the new ed­i­tor of Bri­tish Vogue. keep an eye on the newly an­nointed one, ed­ward en­nin­ful, on Monday night – he’ll be the one laugh­ing at anna Win­tour’s jokes just a bit too hard. —
