The 2018 Met Gala in New York City took place on Monday, and dozens of celebrities lined up to attend the glamorous annual fashion event that has been called the “Oscars of the East Coast” in certain circles.

Celebs Attend Met Gala 2018

Held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Gala is an annual fundraiser for the benefit of the Met’s Costume Institute. Each year, there is a specific theme chosen and celebrities — including actors, musicians, and models — generally choose their outfit to match the theme.

The Costume Institute’s annual exhibition Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination is generally timed to open around the same time as the Met Gala.

Among some of the most famous names who attended this year’s Gala were Bella and Gigi Hadid, Rita Ora, Rihanna, Priyanka Chopa, George and Amal Clooney, Selena Gomez, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Kim Kardashian, Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady, Blake Lively, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez, Kerry Washington, Kylie Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski and Ariana Grande.
