Red-carpet fashion and dressing can be tricky, no stylist wants to get it wrong. With social media, red-carpet looks are under more scrutiny than ever, meaning celebrities are less inclined to take big risks for their appearances. However, the Met Gala is, and always has been, a little bit different.
Celebrity stylist Rebecca Corbin-Murray sums it up when she says, “It’s a showcase for fashion in its pure art form.”.
