The Met Gala is an annual charity event at which the rich and famous play dress-up to raise funds for the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art.
The paparazzi are allowed to legally photograph Beyonce’s bottom and Sarah Jessica Parker gets to wear silly headresses. Everyone goes home slightly bemused.
The theme of the 2015 Met Gala was ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’. Whoever thought it was a good idea to combine Lewis Carrol’s even-more-trippy sequel to Alice in Wonderland with Chinese art was probably looking through the looking glass him or herself. And in this case the looking glass is the bottom of an Absinthe bottle. Because the bottle is empty. They drank it all. Presumably with a shirtless Johnny Depp.
