The Academy Awards who?
The Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute Gala has often been dubbed as “the Oscars of the East Coast” because of it’s impressive and exclusive list of attendees who gallivant down the red carpet donning some of the most expensive garments (all free and borrowed of course) from past, present, and upcoming designers.
And while they differ in that one is an award show and the other is the opening to the annual Fashion exhibit at the Met, it is without a doubt that the red carpet at both is often more entertaining than the event following… but! who are we kidding here? a motion picture award show can certainly not compete to a fashion exhibit in terms of the attire of its guests… sorry Oscars, we have this one.
