Met Gala Recap and “To Meet” Practice.

Posted on May 5 2016 - 4:10pm by PopESL

It was the first Monday in May and that means the Costume Institute’s annual gala was underway.

This gala is often called the Oscars of Fashion, but these days that includes reality TV celebrities alongside Hollywood stars and New York socialites.

Bella Hadid, 19, arrived on the arm of The Weeknd.  Cameron Dallas, the 21-year-old “vine star” who just scored a Calvin Klein campaign, received an invite.

The Met Gala red carpet has become a game of how naked one can be without actually being naked. Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian may won that contest last year, but this year both Madonna (in Givenchy Haute Couture) and Lady Gaga (in Versace) wore bum-bearing outfits and towering heels.

Predictably, Beyoncé was the last to arrive, though without Jay Z , furthering those rumors of infidelity hinted at in “Lemonade,” which dropped last week. Though her Givenchy dress looked rubber-glued to her body, she seemed to move with ease.

“It was actually a lot easier than last year’s dress,” she said. For more about last year’s event click here.

“Met” is the past participle and simple form of the irregular verb “to meet.”

Practice using that verb and select the correct answers below. Good luck!

She __________ her brother at the movies.
We are ______ for drinks after class.
I _____ her last weekend.
She will _____  us after the game.
I want _____ his new girlfriend.
