Met Gala Ticket Prices Soar to $25k Because That's Reasonable


Want to be included in the Oscars of Fashion? It's easy — just drop $25k.

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.

But is all that hype — and soaring ticket price — worth it? One such celeb, Gwyneth Paltrow, says no. "Do you want me to be honest? It sucked. It seems like the best thing in the world. 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! Kanye West was playing, and he was furious, and he threw his microphone down. I feel that we're all a bit old to be dressed punk."
