Please excuse us, we simply returned from 20 years earlier and require a minute to get our bearings.
So various and yet so familiar was the Met Gala assistance on April 28, 2003– which, though it was a sought after (and just $3,500) ticket, was not rather the everybody-who’s- any person event it quickly ended up being, ultimately exceeding the Oscars as style’s most significant night. The best of Keeping Up With the Kardashians was still 4 years away, 13- year-old Taylor Swift was intensely journaling in her youth bed room and TikTok was simply the noise a clock makes.
But the celebration benefiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute was still a best location, an area for the starlets of the minute–Nicole! Kate! Charlize!– to flock with supermodels, designers, design legends, icons-to-be (Victoria Beckham, still discovering her post-Spice Girls legs), and other titans of popular culture. Most of whom, by the method, are still welcome at the occasion Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour commands to this day.
