    Australia Has An Event Just Like The Met Gala And The Outfits Are Incredible

    I see you New York and raise you Melbourne's most glamourous shindig.

    Last week Natalie Portman surprised the entire country by turning up to pre-season training at the Melbourne footy club.

    1. Turns out, Portman was actually in town to attend the second annual NGV Gala at Melbourne's fantastic National Gallery of Victoria over the weekend.

    2. The party is a charity event which raises funds for the gallery. It's basically the Aussie version of New York’s fancy Met Gala.

    The gala also marked the opening of the Escher x Nendo: Between Two Worlds exhibition.
