IN PHOTOS: Red carpet, Met Gala 2017

MANILA, Philippines – The Met Gala 2017 has kicked off, and as usual, Hollywood stars shined in their creative outfits, inspired by the Costume Institute's exhibition.

Officially called the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit, the Met Gala is held every year to raise funds for the Costume Institute. While the gala itself is private, the event's glamorous red carpet has become popular among fans.

This year, the exhibit was titled “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between" and was held on Monday, May 1, in the US.

Hosting the Met Gala 2017 are Anna Wintour, Tom Brady, Gisele Bündchen, Katy Perry, and Pharrell Williams.

Here's a look at the stars on the red carpet, all dressed up for the big event!
