How do you bring the Met Gala to Cameroon? Well, ask Jim-Kevin MOUKOURY who found the most original way to do it. Yes, on the occasion of his 28th birthday, one of the country's most famous travel influencer/doctor/digital creator has made the internet users of 237 and elsewhere dream by choosing the Met Gala as the theme for his big day. For the culture, the Met Gala, formerly known as the Costume Institute Gala and also known as the Met Ball, is an annual fundraising gala for the Anna Wintour Costume Center at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met) in New York. It marks the opening of the Costume Institute's annual fashion exhibition. Each year, the event celebrates the theme of that year's Costume Institute exhibition, which sets the tone for the evening's attire, as guests are asked to choose their attire based on the exhibition's theme.
And the host of the evening was no exception to the rule. By choosing green as his color, the king of the evening also made it clear to his guests that they had to be 'extra' - another characteristic of the Met Gala.
With hand-picked guests such as Georgia Mvondo (Miss Centre 2018), Dona Biyong, DJ Cyrus Black (official DJ of the party) and Ivana Ononino, this birthday party turned into a whole fashion event! Between those who perfectly respected the theme by being extra like Georgia Mvondo or Freddy Manyongo or the host himself, and those who were soberer and classic, like Carlia Fassi, all the elements were gathered to make the evening memorable. And it was so memorable that it had the entire social media buzzing, with people commenting and dissecting every outfit from every guest. This is surely one for the books. And you, what was your fav look at this event? Take a look at the photos !
