How Much Is A Ticket To The Met Gala? Is It Possible To Get Invites?
According to The Sun UK, individual tickets for The Met Gala reportedly cost over $30,000. The tickets initially cost around $1,000 when Anna Wintour took over as the event's head in 1995.
Aside from the individual passes, celebrities could also purchase a luxury private table that is reportedly worth around $275,000.
The outlet mentioned that not all A-list stars pay for their glamorous outfits and tickets as major fashion houses like Versace, Dior, Prada, and more, are handling the payment in exchange for exposure.
Supposed a person has the money and wants to attend the event, in that case, fans are not assured of getting in as Anna Wintour, Vogue's editor-in-chief, is the one curating the guestlist because Met Gala is strictly an "invitation only event."
