Met Gala: Met Gala 2017: See the Red Carpet Arrivals Here

They don’t call it the “Oscars of the East Coast” for nothing. The Met Gala (sometimes also called “the party of the year”) technically signals the opening of the Costume Institute’s annual blockbuster show, but it also provides an opportunity to gawk at the many celebrities who ascend the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art on the first Monday in May.

This year the exhibition is “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between,” and the hosts are Anna Wintour (the gatekeeper for the gala), Tom Brady, Gisele Bündchen, Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams; the honorary chairwomen are Ms. Kawakubo and Caroline Kennedy, the former United States ambassador to Japan.
