“Hey queen, girl you have done it again. Constantly raising the bar for us all, and doing it flawlessly. I’d say I’m surprised but I know who you are. I’ve seen it up close and personal. Girl, you make me so proud and I love you.” @michelleobama @themetgalaofficial
People are crowding around the Met Gala, straining to get a glimpse of somebody, anybody arriving at the red carpet down the street. Six shirtless men in golden pants and jeweled veils are waiting inside the gate, looking cold. (Later I find out that these men were getting ready to carry in Billy Porter on their shoulders.) Suddenly there’s an impossibly loud roar from the crowd. The police barricade opens up around the corner and most of the people standing in front of me rush in to get a better spot. It doesn’t take long to find out who the roar was for. I don’t see her, but I hear one name on everyone’s lips. LADY GAGA. #drawnyc#metgala#ladygaga#billyporter#urbansketchers#globalsketchers#themet#sketchwalker#metsketch

They say that making an entrance is key, and where is that more true than at the #metgala? But, on the first Monday in May, grand entrances aren’t just for the guests. Thanks to @raulavilainc, the event’s designer, the @metmuseum’s Great Hall and its stairs transform annually into a floral-filled wonderworld. Tonight, after celebrities ascend the grand staircase of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, they will gaze upon a bow-legged water fowl, standing 25 feet tall and comprised of 30,000 flowers. Above, watch as this year's grand entrance for #metcamp comes to life. Tap the link in our bio for more stunning centerpieces from #metgalas past.
the P R O C E S S @ashleygraham #metball2019 couldn’t have attached all the hair pins without using the @tresemme antifrizz sheets first 🙌🏽 love how easy they are to smooth over a ponytail for that red carpet smooth finish! #justinemarjanhair#trespartner
@theebillyporter shut down the #metgala red carpet when he arrived on a litter—carried by six shirtless men!—in a theatrical nod to Ancient Egypt. The @poseonfx star’s custom “Sun God” ensemble, by @theblondsny, included a bejeweled catsuit outfitted with 10-foot wings, a 24-karat gold headpiece, as well as custom gold-leaf @giuseppezanotti shoes and fine jewels by @andreolifinejewelry and @oscarheyman.

So fun to shoot Serena’s opening moment of the Gala with center-opening doors. @lincoln #ad @serenawilliams marks her first moments as the co-chair for fashion’s most notable night. An elegant arrival in the 80th Anniversary Lincoln Continental Coach Door Edition, which pays homage to the iconic style of the 1960s.
