Ocean's Eight [Reimagining the Met Gala]
1. Where and When is the Met Gala Happening?
The Met Gala is happening at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. There is a 150-yards long Red Carpet to welcome all the wealthiest people and the biggest celebrities in any category. Traditionally every year the Met Gala is on the first Monday of May and usually starts at 6 pm. Having the chance to see all those outrageous creations from the best designers on the biggest celebrities, parading on the Red Carpet is a true treat for our eyes. This process takes a while because guests don’t miss the chance to strike multiple poses and grace the pages of the biggest fashion magazines the day after.
2. Who is the host and the co-chairs of Met Gala 2019?
Traditionally since 1999 Anna Wintour, the greatest fashion journalist and editor hosts the Met Gala. This year’s co-chairs are and Will Pharrell. These two musicians will be accompanied by Giselle Bundchen and her husband Tom Brady.
3. What is This Year’s Theme?
This year’s event is dedicated to the grand Japanese designer who stands behind the brand Comme des Garçons. In her honor, there will be an exhibition to showcase the most iconic 150-pieces that she designed. After Yves Saint Laurent back in 1983, Kawakubo is the second living designer that the Costume Institute has honored in this way.
4. Who Gets Invited?
The wealthiest, greatest achievers in the area of film, fashion, music, art, Broadway and of course outrageously rich and successful people. Although the list is a subject to change every year, you can expect A-list celebrities such as , and Jennifer Lopez to be among the honored guests of this magnificent fashion event.
5. What is the Price of Tickets?
Ticket’s prices start at $ 30 000 and go up to $ 275 000 per table. This is probably more than someone’s life savings but remember that you get to be in the same room with greatest stars of all times. Ironically, major celebrities need just to show up and look glamorous. To be more specific, they usually get invited by brands and attend the Met Gala for free. Anyway, last year’s Met Gala raised an unbelievable amount of 12.5 million dollars.
6. What is The Dress Code?
Every year female attendees are expected to wear gowns in the spirit of the given theme. This year’s expectations are structured gowns with eye-catchy prints in honor of Rei Kawakubo.
Some celebrities have built a strong relationship with certain fashion houses and they wear gowns from their collections every year. For example, Beyonce five years in a row wears dresses from . Sometimes designers shadow the celebrities that wear their designs to make sure that everything on these massive gowns is in place and repair any accidental malfunctions immediately.
7. Who is on the Guest List This Year?
Unfortunately, the guest list is not revealed yet, but we can expect around 700 A-listers on this year’s Met Gala. One thing is for sure: Met Gala’s tickets are the hardest party tickets of the year to get.
8. Will there be a Met Gala Live Stream?
Surprisingly, there is no Met Gala live stream. All that we get is pictures. Even guests are not allowed to take selfies. Namely, the host, Anna Wintour is a proclaimed selfie hater. Since 2015 she banned the selfies from the Gala with an intention to ensure privacy and enjoyment to all the guests.
Not being able to even sneak peek at the atmosphere of the Met Gala is just one reason more why this outrageous event should be on your list of parties to attend. Who knows, if you work hard enough or get lucky you might be one of those who gets to go to the Gala for free.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art has decided and publicly announced that the 2019 Costume Institute exhibition and the2019Met Gala themewill beRei Kawakubo/ Comme des Garçons. More specifically the Costume Institute’s spring 2019 exhibition will be on from May 4th through September 7th and will deeply explore Rei Kawakubo and Comme des Garçons. Any presentation at the Metropolitan Museum of Art is a big, noteworthy deal, but the last time a living designer had a monograph show at the Met was the Yves Saint Laurent exhibit that was shown in 1983.
Curator Andrew Bolton is the head of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute and he has stated in support of the decision that “Rei Kawakubo is one of the most important and influential designers of the past 40 years.” If that was not clear enough, he elaborated on her aesthetics and intention by saying that “by inviting us to rethink fashion as a site of constant creation, recreation and hybridity, she has defined the aesthetics of our time.”
This may be due to Rei Kawakubo’s background and the way she runs her company now, but her designs have certainly had a marked influence on several big designers like Martin Margiela, Helmut Lang and Ann Demeulemeester.
Rei Kawakubo is not a traditionally trained fashion designer, but actually studied at Keio University in fine arts and literature. Post graduation she worked at the Ashai Kasi textile company in the advertising department. In 1967 she began to work as a stylist on a freelance basis.
The designs she has developed are decided outside the mainstream, considered to be anti-fashion in some circles, but in the best way possible. People do not glance at her designs; they study them and introspectively considering the effect of the designs.
While Rei Kawakubo is known to be a camera-shy recluse, she lets her designs stand tall and speak loudly for her. She has a bi annual magazine that she publishes full of personally inspiring photography. She is involved within her company on many levels rather than just sticking to design alone.
The 2019 Met Gala (The Metropolitan Museum of Arts Costume Institute Benefit) is scheduled on May 1st, and excitement is already gearing up in anticipation of the amazing outfits we will all be talking about for weeks after the gala. The honorary chair of the Gala event is, of course, Rai Kawakubo, and the other co-chairs are Pharrell Williams, Anna Wintour and Katy Perry.
Rei Kawakubo said in a released statement: “I have always pursued a new way of thinking about design … by denying established values, conventions, and what is generally accepted as the norm. And the modes of expression that have always been most important to me are fusion … imbalance … unfinished … elimination … and absence of intent.”

Browse through our list of the best hairstyle moments and makeup looks tackled from the Met Ball 2019 red carpet.
1. Kristen Stewart’s Silver Graphic Work and Knotted Mess
The Twilight girl Kristen Stewart brought not one iota of her previous auburn-haired demure girl visage onto the Met Gala 2019 red carpet but totally oozing out punky vibes. Her platinum bob with dark roots was secured into a messy half-up, half-down knot, while the eyelids were futuristically shining with graphical metallic silver strokes.
2. Poppy Delevingne’s Platinum Stand and Wine-Spiced Lips
Poppy Delevingne’s bejeweled dress was not the only limelight. There was still much stuff to marvel at, starting from her platinum long tresses side-parted and kept in perfectly straight stand to her soft cat-eye accents and wine red pout.
3. Lupita Nyong’o’s Sky-Scraping Hairstyle
Lupita Nyong’o was seemingly paying homage to iconic Nina Simone wearing a sky-scraping towering hairstyle making all and sundry constantly lay eyes on her. As opposed to her topmost hair, Lupita kept her makeup minimalistic and natural.
4. Ciara’s Silver Finger Waves
Ciara was surely among the celebrities to enthusiastically enshrine the “Manus x Machina” theme. She brought her hair all in metallic silver finger waves with many bobby pins fixed here and there, while for makeup she opted for soft smoky eyes with some silver accents.
5. Taylor Swift’s Bleachella and Berry Lips
With our eyes already trained to see Taylor Swift’s platinum bob, which she kept in effortless helter-skelter state the previous evening, it was her deep cherry lips that brought her to a new technology-chic level, while her flawless skin was sweetly showing tender blush.
6. Rita Ora’s Silver Sparkles and Reflections
Rita Ora’s silver feathered gown was just screaming to be matched with silver shadow at the inner corners of the eyes and some mirror diamond-shaped particles on sleek center-parted updo, while her tender lips were all in natural shine.
7. Beyonce’s Nonstop Sleek Hair and Jade Eyes
Beyonce can definitely stay proud with her long tresses as much as with her curvy shapes. She showed them both to the hilt, leaving her chocolate straight strands cascading down, while dressing her eyes with some graphic shapes in jade green and lips – with nude shade.
8. Lara Stone’s Teased Updo and Smoky Eyes
Lara Stone whose beauty goes beyond any standards thanks to her gapped front teeth and bee-stung lips, appeared on the Met Gala 2019 red carpet with her blondes secured into a teased effortless updo, while her smoky eyes jumped far from conventional proportions through silver strokes at the inner corners of the eyes.
9. Gigi Hadid’s Polished Ponytail and Warm Complexion
Sweet Gigi Hadid shining with love next to her boyfriend Zayn Malik, wrapped her whole complexion with warm tones blazing softly, while her blonde hair was secured into a long low ponytail with the side part glittering with silver sparkles.
10. Sienna Miller’s Signature Nude Look
With Sienna Miller we did not see any edgy strokes – no vampy lips, silver sparkles or eye-catching hairstyle. The actress exposed an effortless tousled chignon, which she classically matched with her signature nude lips and kohl-lined eyes, a look she could easily sport on any other red carpet event.
