So later on in the year 2018, the rule was passed on that it is illegal to smoke in the Musuem.
NO ONION BREATH Rule
The Met Gala doesn’t serves any strong pungent flavoured foods so neither onion nor garlic is served at the event in order to avoid bad breath.
STRICT SEATING ARRANGEMENTS
Director of the Special Projects, Sylvana Ward Durrett at Vogue informed earlier that the “power brokering” goes into the seating plan.
