As the traditional MET Gala evening took place on Monday, May 2, a moving marriage proposal took place on the emblematic steps of the New York museum.
“Yes, I do”. These are the 3 words spoken by Laurie Cumbo, the commissioner of cultural affairs for the city of New York during the famous gala of the Metropolitan Museum of Art organized on Monday, May 2. According to NBC News, the young woman was proposed at the most popular event in the world of fashion.

All the participants did not fail to express their excitement by shouting “Say yes, say yes”, as can be heard in the video broadcast by EntertainmentTonight. In it, the commissioner, who wore a gold satin dress and matching gloves fitting the Met Gala’s ‘In America: An Anthology of Fashion’ theme, is seen kissing her partner before grabbing the Tiffany & Co box containing the ring. of engagement.
The journalists present on the spot then jumped at the chance to find out more about what had just happened. “I guess my fiancé just asked me to marry him,” she told them. “And it’s an incredible, unexpected, wonderful event… We’ve been together for almost eight years now and we have a five-year-old son, and it’s the best day ever.” She then revealed that she attended her first Met Gala when she was 15, as an intern, before noting that it was an “honor” for her to have made it this far.
On Twitter, this romantic parenthesis was welcomed by viewers. “Everyone dreams of such a marriage proposal” or “The marriage proposal on the steps was so cute, BYE #MetGala.” So, enough to steal the show from Kim and her Marilyn dress, or Cara and her topless dress?
