Our favorite looks from the Met Gala 2017.

I just finished watching the Met Ball Gala red carpet arrivals on the E channel, and researching who wore what on the Internet in preparation for my annual fashion recap on local ABC morning News. In the fashion world the Met Ball is unquestionably the party of the year with a hefty ticket price of $30,000 per ticket ( yes, that's not a typo ) and attended by a very select exclusive star studded group of 600 celebrities.

The extravaganza benefits the Costume Institute at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art and the first Monday in May is opening night for the annual blockbuster exhibit. This year it's honoring Rei Kawakubo the 74 yr old Japanese designer who founded the label Comme des Garcons. Her genius ground breaking aesthetic is identified as deconstruction at its finest with undertones of androgyny and the definition of "fashion as art."
 

The fashion all stars came out in full force and we saw extremes of simplicity ( Kim Kardashian in a Vivienne Westwood white slip dress sans jewelry ) and costumed drama ( Rihanna in Comme des Garçons Fall 2016 ). Hair was worn off the face in a top of the head bun and a statement red lip was dominant. I'm including some of my faves for eye candy and look forward to attending the must see exhibit in New York!
