How to Make The Met Gala Hip Again

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Dear Anna Wintour,

As editor of Vogue Magazine and longtime chair of the what may be the world’s most expensive and exclusive party, the annual Met Gala set to take place in Manhattan tonight, I’m pretty sure you’ve never heard of me.

In fact, I’m positive.

Something tells me on those rare occasions you go slumming with a trip to Boston, you aren’t tuning in to get Traffic on the 3s.

But I read in Sunday’s New York Times that you personally choose the 550 invited guests, regardless of who has shelled out the absurd sums of $200,000 to $300,000 for a table.

Each year, the guest list reads like a who’s who of the kind of celebrities who are mostly famous for being famous.

Let's put it this way - the Kardashians have been on it.

But Anna, I know you didn’t get to be a bold-facer yourself without being sensitive to trends. And from the Trump election to the #MeToo movement and beyond, there’s a trending backlash against the idolization of the chic Manhattan elite.

So why not go against the grain this year by inviting me, the opposite of chic?

I will wear my fleece vest covered in Buddy the Lab’s dog hair instead of a tux.

I will give the other celebs rabbit ears on the red carpet.

And I will smuggle a whoopee cushion into the Met to provide the festivities with some badly-needed yuks.

Whaddaya say Anna, old sport? Text me quickly and I’ll hop on the shuttle.

And for once, the Met gala will have a Bruins fan in the mix.
