Without question the biggest fashion event of the year (outside of New York fashion week), the yearly Met Gala is an invitation from Anna Wintour to allay any fears that she’s remotely close to that villian portrayed in ‘The Devil Wears Prada’. One can hardly argue the success of the fundraising event since she took the helm in 1995. The ‘official’ purpose of the Met Gala “is to serve as an annual fundraising gala for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s Costume Institute in New York City.
We all know that isn’t quite the case. The Met Gala is about one thing, Anna Wintour, and why shouldn’t it be!? When asked by the New York Times to comment on this year’s gala, she declined to be formally interviewed for the article. However, Ms. Wintour agreed to answer three questions via email as long as they did not involve the guest list, the seating plan or financial information. Sounds reasonable to me! Vladimir Putin annexed the Crimea, why should Anna be forced to discuss her strategy to take over the Iron throne?
