The Met Gala, otherwise known as the Costume Institute Gala, is unquestionably one of fashion's biggest nights of the year -- driven by the industry's leading lady. After all, if anyone can bring all of Hollywood to New York City for a crowded, warm night at the museum, it's Anna Wintour!

This year's theme, "Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology," is guaranteed to be a fun one, with celebrities and designers alike taking inspiration from the tech-driven and sometimes futuristic lives we lead.
