Jennifer Lopez at Metropolitan Ball

It is considered one of the most prestigious social events in New York and has received a growing audience especially since Vogue magazine is covering the red carpet scene. It was first held in 1971 and has become an annual affair. Ticket prices have soared over time as the event grew in popularity and prestige and currently they are somewhere between $5000 and $15,000, for an evening of ballroom dancing and a formal dinner.

The event is also called the “Oscars of the East Coast” as it is an undeclared rival to the Vanity Fair Oscar Party held in Los Angeles. While more celebrities attend the L.A. Oscar party, the Met Ball is famous for being one of the most fashionable events in the social calendar.
