The Met Gala Was Monday and Everyone’s Over-Posting on Instagram

The Met Gala was held on Monday at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York which means Vogue and pretty much every brand, magazine, and fashion news publication is over-posting on Instagram.

Vogue does this every year. On Monday the publication posted a couple of photos on Instagram talking about the Met Gala along with its usual posts. Then, on Tuesday after the event had already been held, the publication posted photos about every 15 minutes all day.

The publication, of course, posted photos of celebrities on the red carpet, attending the event, and afternoon the event. They were photos of their outfits and accessories. The publication also posted videos of celebrities at the event as well as a video of Editor in Chief Anna Wintour.

Pretty much every luxury brand did this as well. Many celebrities have outfits made for them by luxury brands like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Hermès, Ralph Lauren, Saint Laurent, Calvin Klein, and more. These brands post pictures of celebrities wearing the outfits they made for them. They also post pictures of everyone else wearing outfits made by them as well as pictures of the outfits, handbags, accessories, and more. They post about every 15 minutes like Vogue.

Every other magazine and fashion news publication does this as well. They post photos and videos every 15 minutes all day of every celebrity on the red carpet. So, if you follow Vogue, some luxury brands, and any other magazines and fashion news publications on Instagram, your Instagram will have a lot of new posts on it.

They also do this every fashion week and sometimes during the CFDA awards and British Fashion Awards. So, every Met Gala and every fashion week Vogue and pretty much every luxury brand, magazine, and fashion news publication is over-posting on Instagram.

Vogue, of course, has to post pictures and videos of every celebrity, especially the most popular ones. Brands take the opportunity to promote their clothing. Magazines and fashion news publications want to post photos of every celebrity, outfit, handbag, and more. So, it’s to be expected that they’re going to post every 15 minutes. It’s just a little annoying.

Last year, I talked about how fashion can be annoying in that I read and write about it Monday through Friday and that on the weekends I don’t want to hear about it. The weekends are a break and reading about it or annoying posts coming up on Instagram is like getting an annoying email from your boss on the weekend and pretty much nobody wants to read that.

That’s how annoying it is when Vogue and every luxury brand, magazine, and fashion news publication is over-posting on Instagram. Vogue has to do it, brands promote their outfits, magazines and fashion news publications posts photos of celebrities on the red carpet. Everyone posts at these events. They just post every 15 minutes and it’s just a little annoying.
