According to a New York Times article by Vanessa Friedman about the Met Gala, since 2015, guests have been banned from posting pictures on social media as soon as they walk down the red carpet. This means that everything inside must be kept secret, but luckily, here are a few details behind the closed party that have leaked out.
The red carpet is over what do met gala guests do at the party?
After taking pictures on the red carpet , Met Gala guests will have a cocktail party and visit the exhibition space. Each person will be accompanied by a pre-assigned private guide. First, if you’re wondering about seating arrangements, party planner Eaddy Kiernan lamented to Vogue: “We had to think very carefully about who would sit next to whom. The ideal goal is to arrange for two people who appear to be opposites but actually have a lot in common to talk to each other.”
This is a great opportunity for leading figures in the fashion and entertainment world to network, exchange plans or just have a friendly chat. There are many unexpected “friends” discovered through selfies at the Met Gala. They were forced to invite each other to the toilet room to “sneakly” take pictures because the Met still forbade them to take photos at the party.
The main event includes a vegan dinner prepared by each year’s team of chefs. This year, according to Vogue Runway’s Twitter post, the menu is led by three talented female chefs – Lauren Von der Pool, Melissa King and Amirah Kassem. Together they came up with a menu that represents the evolution of American cuisine.
Start with Von der Pool, who is tasked with serving as the appetizer during cocktail hour. As a vegan chef, she makes classic devil eggs, using Yukon potatoes instead of any animal products. King chose a combination of fresh Hamachi mixed with citrus, olives and Sichuan peppers for the first main course of the party. “ I wanted to create a dish that blends cultures – the same ethnic diversity that makes up America’s DNA today.”
Amirah Kassem “hosts” the dessert. Her cake is topped with chocolate and cappuccino, all handcrafted in the shape of a teacup. “This dessert represents the Glamor Gilded theme,” she asserts . Tea Gown (An upside down teacup ball gown) was very popular in America’s golden age. They are often worn to dinners with family or close friends . ”
In addition, each year, at least one artist will be selected to perform under the themes of the Met Gala. As in 2018, to represent the Heavenly Bodies theme: Fashion and Catholic associations , it is Madonna . She is said to have an obsession when she was raised Catholic from a young age and that greatly influenced her style and thinking in fashion.
In 2022, American music and cinema will be re-interpreted. Kacey Musgraves covered the ballad Can’t Help Falling in Love (1961) from the film Elvis . American Treasure – Lenny Kravitz performed three of her biggest hits: Are You Gonna Go My Way (1993), Fly Away (1998) and American Woman (1998). In the background of the stage is the historic Egyptian temple of Dendur, which is now preserved in the Metropolitan Museum.
And because the Met Gala is still a fundraiser for The Costume Institute – a curating division of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, there will be formal speeches, preliminary planning presentations. sets during the year or several auctions. In the past (at least before Vogue took control of the Met in 1972)
lotteries were one of the most popular forms of entertainment and there was even a little beauty contest during the night. Today, however, the program timeline is cut out for a neater look. The evening had to end fairly early to give the celebrities a chance to change outfits and attend the after-party.
