Stars often show up to the Met Gala looking as campy as they (and their stylists) can manage. So before Gaga even walked the carpet, we were expecting something we had never seen before, and that's exactly what she gave us!
Wintour said she believes this year's Met Gala to be about "self expression" and "individuality", noting that she wanted to see "outrageous, fun, tongue in cheek" fashion on the red carpet.
The Met Gala, celebrating its 71st anniversary, is a black-tie fundraiser for the museum's Costume Institute and previous year more than 12 million USA dollars were raised.
Earlier in the day, Anna attended a press preview for the exhibit.
Rihanna attends the Benefit Gala "Poiret: King Of Fashion" at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 7, 2007 in New York City. Not only do tickets start at $30,000 with tables going for $300,000, but Empress Wintour, who will most likely be wearing Chanel, has to approve you for the guest list.
Last year's Met Gala followed the theme 'Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination'.
However, according to 10 Daily, the invite list being circulated is actually not the guest list, but the list of the host committee, a list of 183 people chosen by Vogue's editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. The theme is the basis for the Costume Institute's spring exhibition.
"Met Gala here we come".
Lady Gaga was one the Met Gala's leading ladies on May 6 - she served as co-chair of the annual event this year - so she made sure her FOUR outfits were some of the best of the evening.
