The Met Gala, formally called the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. It marks the opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit and is overseen by Vogue editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, who ultimately decides who gets to attend the event each year.
