The time has come again for one of the most exclusive social events in New York and one of the biggest fundraising nights of the city. The Met Ball or Met Gala, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. Anna Wintour, Vogue editor-in-chief and chair of the event since 1995, oversees both the benefit committee and the guest list. This year's Met Ball saw its many embracing old school elegance in the most romantic of dresses. New trends also emerged such as cropped tops which offered a hint of midriff and brought a bit of edginess to the event. Below are some of my favourite looks of the night, see more on PopSugar and Vogue.
