Met Gala brings in a record $17.4 百万, museum says
This year’s Met Gala earned a record $17.4 百万, museum officials said Tuesday

All that “gilded glamour” brought in some real gold. This year’s Met Gala earned a record $17.4 百万, museum officials said Tuesday.

The annual gala is a fundraiser for the self-funding Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The money pays for operating the institute and putting on annual blockbuster exhibits like the current “In America: An Anthology of Fashion” which was launched at the gala Monday night and opens to the public May 7. That exhibit is part of a broader two-part exhibit exploring the roots of 美国人 时尚.

The gala is traditionally held the first Monday in May, but because of the pandemic, 这 2021 version was held last September. The two galas together brought in $33.7 百万, the institute said.

The theme of Monday’s gala was “gilded glamour.”

Monday’s gala brought together about 400 guests — some of the biggest names from fashion, 娱乐, sports and beyond.
