Wandering Tales | Met Museum - China: Through the Looking GlassMet Gala is a big fashion and celebrity charity event that happens every year. But being the not-so-updated fashion wise person that I am, I wasn't really aware of the event until a few years ago. All I knew of it then was "some fancy thing at the museum where a lot of celebs dressed up really nicely for". Now that I know, the news about who wears what and who attended the gala seem even more noticeable especially with trending stories and blog coverages.
The actual exhibits never caught my attention until this year's China: Through the Looking Glass. Part of the reason why I was interested this time 'round was due to the photos that were being shared by my friends on Facebook. Another was because I am a little bias towards Chinese and Asian things.
It is hard to deny that the haute couture pieces were amazing pieces. Where else and when else would a typical person be able to see high fashion designs in such close proximity?
But I was equally excited to see that some of the items were actual costumes that actresses wore in movies from decades ago. Even though I haven't seen any of the movies that were featured in the clips, I love to see behind the scenes type of stuff.
