The Met Gala was back with a bang. Called the Oscars of the fashion world, the 73yo event is a fundraiser for New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art – but it’s all about the celebs and their outfits… ‘In America: A Lexicon of Fashion’ was this year’s theme: cue the red, white and blue with a sprinkling of cowboy… And being the home of the brave, some used the occasion to make a political statement, like Democratic politician Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez whose gown was embellished with ‘Tax The Rich’. Which she wore to an event attended by some of the most wealthy people in the world… Taking on a more abstract interpretation [insert shrugging lady emoji] was Kim Kardashian, who wore a haunting head-to-toe Balenciaga piece… And pop star Billie Eilish in her Grace Kelly-inspired Oscar de la Renta gown was also the talk of the town.
