Tickets to the annual Met Gala, otherwise known as the Oscars of Fashion, will rise to $25,000 each this year after organizers including Anna Wintour decided the New York event needs to be even more exclusive.
Page Six can reveal that while tickets were available for $15,000 for this May’s event, the price is rocketing to $25,000 for the glamorous event next May.
A source exclusively confirmed to us, “There will be one ticket price of $25,000 (last year there were $15,000 + $25,000 tickets) for the 2014 gala celebrating both the reopening of the Costume Institute and the Charles James exhibition.”
Of course, attending designers are permitted to invite their model muses, but Wintour personally approves each guest. Another source added, “Increasing the ticket price will make the Met Gala even more high-fashion, even more exclusive and even more aspirational.” <=== THE SHADE!!!
Reps for Wintour and the Costume Institute at the Met declined to comment. Via PageSix
