“The Met Gala is Halloween for celebrities”

The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute has held an annual fundraiser since 1948, called the Costume Institute Gala, but usually known as the “Met Gala” or “Met Ball.” Many people have compared the Met Gala to Halloween. “Nice! RT @TheFashionLaw: The Met Gala is the new Halloween - per Nicole Richie” was posted on Twitter by Angie Scarlett on May 6, 2013.

The Met Gala has been nicknamed the “Oscars of the East Coast” and the “Party of the Year.” Other Met Gala descriptions include “The Met Gala is just Final Fantasy cosplay for rich people,” “Met Gala is the ugly sweater contest for the upper class,” “The Met Gala is Burning Man for people named in the Panama Papers” and “Met Gala is just Burning Man for rich(er) people.” “What’s a Met Gala?"/"A type of apple found in New York. Also why it’s called the Big Apple” is a Gala apple joke.


Wikipedia: Met Gala
The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala or the Costume Institute Benefit and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. It marks the opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit. Each year’s event celebrates the theme of that year’s Costume Institute exhibition, and the exhibition sets the tone for the formal dress of the night, since guests are expected to choose their fashion to match the theme of the exhibit.
