On The First Monday of May each year, New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art throws open its big heavy, historical doors to host The Party of the Year™ aka The Met Gala (or, #MetGala). Each year, the Gala is themed, and yes, it’s a huge party and Rihanna always looks amazing, but it’s also the opening of a correlating fashion exhibition that non-celebs can go to afterwards, and do in droves!). This fascinating doco follows the behind the scenes lead up to 2015’s Met Gala, themed China: Through the Looking Glass. Even if your idea of Sunday Best is trackies and a ‘good’ flannie, this isn’t just about style – it’s about politics, history, and getting what you want.
