Every year, at the beginning of May, the Metropolitan Museum in New York plans one of the biggest events in the fashion world – the Met Gala, dedicated to the biggest exhibit of the year. In 2015, the event was dedicated to the exhibit “China: Through the Looking Glass,” which studied the influence of Chinese culture on the worlds of fashion and art, and which became one of the most-visited exhibits in the history of the Costume Institute. The exhibit also presented a unique opportunity for the American and European cinema worlds: the films in the exposition were chosen personally by Wong Kar Wai.

“The First Monday in May” shows one of the most important events in worldwide fashion culture through the eyes of the gala’s organizers – the editor-in-chief of American Vogue, Anna Wintour, and the curator of the Costume Institute Andrew Bolton. The gala’s main participants are the world’s leading designers, actors, musicians, and models, including Rihanna, Beyoncé, Sara Jessica Parker, Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga, Jean-Paul Gaultier, John Galliano, and others.
