Each year, hundreds of celebrities and fashion designers gather for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual fundraiser in New York City. Known as the Met Gala or Met Ball, the event kicks off Monday evening at 6 p.m. at the Met, which is located at Fifth Avenue and 82nd Street in Manhattan.

This year, the spring 2015 Costume Institute exhibit is dedicated to Chinese fashion, which is the theme of the gala. Hong Kong billionaire Silas Chou will host the event. “Hunger Games” actress Jennifer Lawrence, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, Anna Wintour, Wendi Murdoch and Gong Li will serve as co-chairs. Tickets were priced at $25,000 each.
