What Is Met Gala?

Every Year I see these crazy outfits that the celebrities wear to the Met Gala.. I always wonder what the Met Gala was and finally this year I decided to look into it.

The Met Gala features entertainment and dinner and an auction.  But the real question is how do these celebrities sit to eat?  Is the head wear heavy? Do they take it off once they get inside? Man to be a fly on the wall inside!
