We’re still recovering from the long weekend, but we spent the day glued to all the Met Gala glamour. As you wind down for the day, we also have your evening meal sorted and a reason for you to love your BFF even more.

Screen-Shot-2016-05-03-at-10.34.42

Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art last night. The Met Gala offers an opportunity to be a little more?adventurous, even avant-garde. Who got it right?
