Next year it wouldn’t shock me if a guest or two had advertising on what they choose to wear, much like NASCAR.

The vast majority of attendees to the Met Gala monetized their appearance. From makeup to hair products to how they got ready to accessories, everything was sold at a price. The attendees would then tell their followers how to get the products. The powers that be have always given preference to advertisers who advertise in the magazine for a year or longer, often with multiple pages. For a fraction of that, advertisers just throw some money at an attendee and get a lot more eyeballs.

MET GALA

The vast majority of attendees to the Met Gala monetized their appearance.

From makeup to hair products to how they got ready to accessories, everything was sold at a price.

The attendees would then tell their followers how to get the products.

The powers that be have always given preference to advertisers who advertise in the magazine for a year or longer, often with multiple pages.

For a fraction of that, advertisers just throw some money at an attendee and get a lot more eyeballs. Plus the makeup artists and everyone else also get paid by advertising every product they are using on the attendee and then also giving a link to purchase.

So, because of that kind of monetization, you have the stylist people paying the attendee to work on them rather than getting a fee for doing the work.

Next year it wouldn’t shock me if a guest or two had advertising on what they choose to wear, much like NASCAR.
