The Met Gala is fashion’s most anticipated red carpet event. This year’s theme for the gala is: Rei Kawakubo, the designer of Comme de Garcons.
“Rei Kawakubo is one of the most important and influential designers of the past 40 years,” Andrew Bolton, head curator for the costume institute, stated in a press release. “By inviting us to rethink fashion as a site of constant creation, recreation, and hybridity, she has defined the aesthetics of our time.”
It features womenswear clothing that starts back at 1981 to today, which means we can expect some pretty creative themed outfits from our favorite a-listers.
Celebrities will hit the red carpet in them tonight, and this year’s main event is hosted by Pharrell Williams and Katy Perry. To celebrate the big night, we created a playlist that features the past performers over the last several years. Listen to it below and stay tuned for more on the gala.
