Every celebrity loves to go out and strut their stuff on the red carpet right? But, what about for an annual fundraiser? The history behind the Met Gala is not only the fashion we see on the red carpet but the theme, the meaning to give back, and appreciate the arts. It has turned into somewhat of a tradition for many celebrities to gather on the first Monday in May to raise awareness and money for the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute. Attendees are able to view a different themed exhibit each year. For example, this years theme and exhibit was entitled "Manus X Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology," which some guest may have taken a little to literal according to their outfit.  It is truly "the party of the year" in which major names in business, politics, film, fashion, and music gather and  mix one another with a few cocktails. Check out this years chairs Taylor Swift & Idris Elba along with a few of the looks from last nights red carpet below!
