The Met Ball, aka the biggest fashion night of the year, happened Monday night — and we’re still taking in all of the fierce, wacky, I-could-literally-never-pull-that-off outfits put on display. The event, which raises money for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, celebrated Japanese designer Rei Kawakubo and her label, Comme des Garçons this year, with many guests dressing on theme with her creations.
Check out the five Jewish celebrities who stood out in particular for their glamorous, bold fashion choices.
Thank you, Elizabeth Kennedy, for making me feel so embodied in this sensual tablecloth of a gown. Commes Des Garçons has always been for the creature who dares to be different, who needs clothing to be more than a way to telegraph wealth or culturally imposed super-sexuality. Now THAT is a theme I can get behind. Much love to @voguemagazine for bringing so much power and passion to the Met, which has always been church to me. It’s easy to forget amidst the glitz just how much good this night does, raising millions to preserve essential artifacts and making sure style really is for everyone. ❤️ Can I get an amen?
