Tickets to The Met Gala, one of fashion’s biggest events, have almost doubled in price. The new admission price for the May 5th event will now cost guests a whopping $25,000.
Vogue editor Anna Wintour wants to ensure the annual Met Gala is an exclusive high-fashion event and helped influence the event’s organizers in upping the ticket price. As for why the need for such restricted access, some magazines are noting the events surrounding Kim Kardashian’s first appearance last year, which turned into a series of memes that were a big hit online. Since Anna Wintour already personally approves each guest, including each designer’s dates, we’re sure that Anna has no problem ensuring the proper people attend the event.
Considering some of the designer gowns worn that night will cost more than the $25,000 ticket price, we don’t think there will be a shortage of the pricey invites. The annual event, which dates back to the 1970s, is attended by some of fashion’s biggest names, Hollywood celebrities and entertainment royalty.
