The Met Gala Red Carpet Looks: From Glamorous to Outrageous

The Met Gala is a fundraising benefit for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The white tie dress code was entitled “Gilded Glamour” which encouraged guests to approach late 19th-century clothing through a modern lens, referencing the very popular HBO series, “The Gilded Age.”

One of the most noteworthy gowns was seen on Kim Kardashian, shown here on the red carpet with Pete Davidson.
