At every renowned and prestigious event, from The Grammys to the Emmy Awards to the Oscar Awards, one thing that many people focus upon is the fashion, fashion and more fashion. The annual MET Gala is all about just that – fashion. The 2015 MET Gala made its way to the Big Apple, NYC on May 4, 2015 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and some of the greatest, haute coutures and chic fashion styles worn by celebrities filled the room. This year’s theme for the renowned gala was “Chinese Whispers: Tales of the East in Art, Film and Fashion”. Celebrities took this day as an opportunity to exhibit some of the most eye-catching attires and once again, the night was all about the many fashion risks that were taken.
Hundreds of celebrities attended the event from actors and actresses to singers and musicians to models. Some of the many guests included Justin Bieber, Ansel Elgort, Sarah Jessica Parker, Rihanna, Beyoncé, Anna Wintour and many, many more.
