After it was announced that Alia Bhatt would make her debut at the 2023 Met Gala, there are reports that she paid a hefty sum.
The Met Gala is one of the most highly anticipated fashion events of the year.
Celebrities and fashionistas alike showcase their style and creativity on the red carpet.
However, the recent increase in ticket prices has caused a stir among the public.
According to media reports, ticket prices for the 2023 Met Gala have been raised from $30,000 to a staggering $50,000 per person.
This $20,000 increase in ticket prices has been met with criticism and controversy.
The Met Gala was originally started in 1948 to raise funds for the newly launched Costume Institute at the Museum of Art in New York.
The first event was a dinner function with a ticket price of $50.
Over the years, the event has grown in popularity and prestige, with A-list celebrities flocking to the event each year to showcase their fashion-forward looks.
In 2022, the Met Gala reportedly earned around $17.4 million.
