100 celebs dress up in wild fashion for ‘Vietnam’s Met Gala’

Nearly 100 Vietnamese celebrities on Friday turned the opening session of a showcase event by a local top pop singer into a fashion night that made some think of the famous Met Gala as they all showed off bizarre outfits.

The fashion exhibit in Ho Chi Minh City was held as part of the event to promote the latest single I am Diva of Thu Minh, one of the veteran singers in Vietnam.

Event organizers said they got the idea for the festivity from Met Gala, an annual fundraising gala in New York that was established in 1948 as a way to raise money for the newly-founded Costume Institute and mark the opening of its annual exhibit. Met Gala is considered one the most prominent and most exclusive social events in the world.

But the event in Ho Chi Minh City did not involve any fundraising activity like the U.S. event that it took inspiration from, as the focus was on the wild and wacky costumes.

As members of the press waited for the appearance of the famous star, invited guests strolled one by one on the red carpet in weird and crazy outfits, matching the theme "Fashion Rebellion," as requested by the organizers.

The event also honored the Queen and King of the night: former beauty queen Giang My and pop singer Dam Vinh Hung.
