If you have a debut, school prom, or grad ball to dress up for, then the celebrities have the annual Met Gala as the fashion industry's much-anticipated prom night. The gala is known for their out-of-this-world themes and this year's was no exception. This year's theme, Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçon, is a huge game changer because aside from being outrageously fashionable, Rei is also the first designer to be the Met's subject since Yves Saint Laurent back in 1983!

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
