An enthralling glimpse into the annual fashionista event, the Met Gala.

The first Monday in May - hailed as the Super Bowl of the fashion world – is when the annual Met Gala is held. Director Andrew Rossi (who made Page One: Inside the New York Times) follows the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton as he prepares the 2015 edition (titled China: Through the Looking Glass), balances alongside viewing ‘Vogue’ editor Anna Wintour as she orchestrates the supremely glitzy fundraiser which attracts the world’s biggest celebrities. A glossy and gripping debate about whether fashion can be art.
