The Met Gala is an annual fundraiser for the benefit of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute of New York City. If you want to attend, a ticket costs $35,000 and a table costs between $200,000 – $300,000. However, even if you have the money, you might not be able to go.
Anna Wintour, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue and Gala chair since 1995, controls a tight guest list of around 600 people. These people often include celebrities, artists, politicians, and obviously very rich people.
Given tickets cost $35,000 and up, I thought it’d be fun to calculate the minimum amount of rich you need to be to attend.
