Tips & Trends | Met Gala 2017: Party and the After Party

Year after year, I get myself ready for the Met Gala and all of its glory. No, I don’t get to attend (I will one day, pray for me) BUT I definitely make sure I am informed. I’m a detail-oriented individual and for some reason, this is truly the one high scale event where I care about everything – from who is showing up and what they are wearing, to what the theme is and who’s following, capturing and honouring it.

Gala-goers will not only do their best to turn heads in their gowns and suits at the event

Art and fashion are oftentimes synonymous with one another, and the Met Gala is the Super Bowl and Oscars of showcasing that. So, that’s the party. Then comes the after-party. Gala-goers will not only do their best to turn heads in their gowns and suits at the event itself but also after, in their “quick change.” A quick change is an ensemble that is after-party ready and appropriate. Here are some of my faves from this year!
