The Met Gala is one of the most elite events in the Big Apple and on the chair of this glamorous gala is none other than Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour. Attended by the biggest names in the arts, fashion and entertainment industries, the Met Gala is an annual fundraisng event for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute held in New York and happens to be one of the biggest fundraisers in the city. The event also doubles up as a celebration for the opening of the institute's annual fashion exhibit. So prestigious and serious is this iconic fashion fundraiser, that in 2013 the event raised an impressive 9 million dollars.
From admiring the breathtaking and billowing ball gowns that graced the Red Carpet of May 2014's Met Gala, one might think it had been sprinkled with a little fairy dust. The dresses on the Red Carpet were not only beautiful, they were totally Disney Princess - esque! And in attendence were Cinderella, Aurora, Merida and many more. But the Belle of the (Met) Ball for us has to be Katie Holmes, hands down!
Who knew that channelling your inner - Disney Princess to grace one of the world's most fashionable carpets would be such a fashion phenomenon?
