The annual met gala has been in existence dating back to 1948, created as a benefit for a yearly fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. —one of the most challenging invites on earth to receive. The Gala ticket costs 50,000 dollars, and a table costs a quarter million. Why is the Annual benefit such a huge deal? That is because the matriarch of fashion herself, Anna Wintour, global fashion icon and editor-in-chief of Vogue, has been co-chaired since 1995.

This year’s co-chairs are Penelope Cruz, Michaela Coel, Roger Federer, Dua Lipa, and of course, Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.
