Tonight is the Met Gala, an annual fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in New York City. Every year, celebrities flock to the event dressed to the nines. This year's theme was “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion." Glamour magazine translates that for us pleebs: it's all about American fashion designers, including their responses to social and political issues.
Poet Amanda Gorman served as co-chair of the event. And her ensemble was definitely immigration themed: a royal blue Vera Wang gown covered in crystals meant to be a "reimagined Statute of Liberty." Gorman even carried a clutch designed to look like a book titled "Give Us Your Tired."
