Hip-Hop Shows Up At The 2017 Met Gala & It Reminds You How Pop Urban Culture Currently Is

It’s that time of year again. The highly publicized red carpet of one of fashion’s biggest events that takes place annually at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. Not only is Met Gala arguably the biggest fashion event of the year but it is also one of the most exclusive social events in New York, as well as one of the biggest fundraising nights in the city. Last night was the Gala’s (formerly known as Costume Institute Gala) 71st anniversary and Hip-Hop was in the building heavy. 

The Met Gala is a major fundraising benefit that serves as an opening celebration for the Institute’s annual fashion exhibit. Each year’s event celebrates the theme of that year’s Costume Institute exhibition, and the exhibition sets the tone for the formal dress of the night, since guests are expected to choose their fashion to match the theme of the exhibit. Each year the event also has honorary celebrity event day chairpersons. Last night’s chairs were Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams. 

The Gala itself has become a media frenzy and as the years have gone by Hip-Hop has become more and more of a presents. With many individuals in urban entertainment being engulfed in the fashion world the 2017 Met Gala was dominated by the Hip-Hop world. The Migos even performed at Met Gala this year. The fact that Vogue editor-in-chief and overseer of the benefit committee as well as the guest list Anna Wintour gave the ok for Migos to perform let’s you know how Pop Hip-Hop is in 2017. This isn’t surprising, especially when you think about how Hip-Hop fashion over the past 10 years has seem to have conformed to more of a European style. It can be argued that there no longer is any Hip-Hop fashion it’s just strictly European fashion being worn by Hip-Hop artist.

With this transition of fashion it has made Hip-Hop more welcoming to the exclusive high society community. Last night’s theme came from Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between and had the internet in an uproar. For those of us who weren’t able to get our hands on a $25,000 ticket to this event all we have are the images and footage. Here’s some of the highlights.
