Every year the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York plays host to the Met Gala - honoring the opening the Costume Institute's new exhibit. At $10,000 a ticket, the opening night gala is packed full of socialites, top fashion designers and fashion icons like Anna Wintour, editor in chief of Vogue.
One of my favorite quotes from the 2013 Met Gala Red Carper comes from Fashion designer and icon Tommy Hilfiger "Punk rock has a unique culture and distinct style that I really admire. Music of all genres has always been a central influence in my designs. I tend to gravitate more toward classic American rock, but I listen to and love punk rock albums from The Ramones and Blondie."
