That's right. Tickets to the annual Met Gala have skyrocketed from this year's comparatively conservative price of $15,000 to a record $25,000. The Gala, held at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, will be held on May 5 this year and, as always, will feature the entertainment, fashion, and music industry's most stylish.

And then you get there, and it's so hot, and so crowded, and everyone's pushing you," the 41-year-old actress told an Australian radio show earlier this year. "It wasn't fun!
