Yesterday was the first Monday in May, which only means one thing – MET GALA! After work, I packed my camera and rushed up to the Upper East Side to watch as the guests arrived. As I made my way to 83rd and 5th avenue around 6pm, I was greeted by several other eager fans waiting to see what their favorite celebrities would be wearing to the ultra-exclusive Met Gala. With the theme of Man Vs Machine, I was on the look out for metallic, intricate designs, and of course larger than life dresses.
While looking for the best viewing spot, I heard a familiar voice “oh hey, Ellese.” It was a close friend I hadn’t seen in years! We chatted for a few minutes about how she is working for The Met and how blogging was going for me. It was the best sighting of the night to see her face! It also reminds me how small this island really is.
Back to the Met Gala, I left my friend to get the perfect standing spot to shoot these photos of attendees jumping out of their cars to make their way through the red carpet. It was interesting some celebrities didn’t want to be caught on camera until they made it to the stairs ( ahem Wiz Khalifa). So here are a few celebs that gave us fans a little bit of love and fashion.
