Ahh, the Met Gala. The Met Gala is a night when Hollywood’s crème de la crème gather at the Met in New York City for an exclusive invite-only red carpet event broadcast to the whole world. It’s arguably one of the biggest nights in fashion of our time.
Year-on-year, the bar is raised with celebs trying to go bigger and better in the wardrobe department than the year before. Many of the event’s iconic attendees go to extreme lengths to nail their Met ‘fit.
Last year, we saw Kim K undergo a self-inflicted military-style fitness regime to squeeze into Marilyn Monroe’s iconic ‘Happy Birthday Mr. President' gown borrowed from Ripley’s Museum.
On that note, here’s everything we know about the event, like how to watch the 2023 Met Gala in Australia:
