"The First Monday in May" movie: Definite must see! And the 2016 Met Gala best dressed list.

The First Monday in May follows the 2015 creation of The Metropolitan Museum of Art's most attended fashion exhibition in history, "China: Through The Looking Glass," an exploration of Chinese-inspired Western fashions by Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton. Filmmaker Andrew Rossi captures high fashion and celebrity entertainment at the Met Gala, one of the biggest global fashion events chaired every year by Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour.  This movie features a cast of artists in many fields (including filmmakers Wong Kar Wai, Baz Luhrmann and fashion designers Guo Pei, Karl Lagerfeld, Jean Paul Gaultier and John Galliano) as well as a host of contemporary pop icons like Rihanna and Justin Bieber, the movie dives into the debate about whether fashion should be viewed as art and it also goes behind the scenes on building this exhibition.  It's fascinating that the designers choose their models and actresses to dress up that fits their aesthetic properly to showcase them in their dresses.  If you are interested in fashion and entertainment, this is definitely the movie for you especially if you want to see Anna Wintour as herself working behind the scenes.
