“The First Monday In May”

If your invitation got lost in the mail or you just didn’t have time to attend, here is your chance to get an inside look at the planning and the actual event:  the Metropolitan Museum of Art Gala 2015.0876964009652_p0_v1_s118x184.jpg The moving force behind this elaborate charity happening is Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue.  Andrew Bolton, head of the Costume Institute at the Met, curated this show:  “China Through The Looking Glass.”  These two creative individuals and a staff of hundreds of people put together the most successful show at the Costume Institute.  If you have any doubt how important this event is at the Met take note that the Met is closed only a few days each year.  One of those days is the first Monday in May.

If you want a glimpse of the big name celebrities who attended and, of course, what these glamorous women wore, this documentary does not disappoint.

What is probably more interesting is the discussion of fashion as art.  Wintour, of course, believes that fashion is art and the film provides ample proof in explanations of how each piece in the show demonstrates artistic craftsman and beauty.

For those interested in fashion, art, and the activities of the rich and famous this film is an interesting glimpse into their world.
