Met Gala 2012 Page 1
Vivienne Westwood may be pretty much it when it comes to punk’s early influence on fashion, but when the Metropolitan Museum of Art opens its doors for the Costume Institute Gala on May 6, the designer won’t hold quite the place of honor that some may have hoped.
We all thought Jenna Lyons‘s Met Gala outfit consisted of a regular denim jacket and Schiaparelli pink skirt, but turns out that there’s more than meets the eye. She took to J. Crew‘s Tumblr to reveal the many secrets behind her ensemble.
Just in case you wanted to own a piece of Met Gala history, here’s your chance! Carey Mulligan is auctioning off the custom-made Prada halter dress that she wore to the fashionable fête on eBay to raise money for Oxfam America.
In today’s News of the Obvious, Anna Wintour probably banned Kim Kardashian from the Met Gala.
Brooke Shields looked pretty in a navy lace J. Mendel gown at last night’s Met Gala. But what was up with the cane?
We see London, we see France, we see Marc Jacobs‘s underpants.
We never thought we’d end up with so much Prada on the worst dressed list for an event in honor of the brand, but it just goes to show that label isn’t everything. On an evening where everyone’s watching (and werking) there really is no room for error.
This year’s Met Gala red carpet was overwhelming, to say the least. There were tons of show-stopping gowns, but we had to narrow it down to a few standouts.
The Met Gala is upon us! Fashion’s biggest fete is going down tonight, and we want you to get in on all the action. How? It’s as easy as 1-2-3.
And the countdown begins! Tomorrow at 6:30PM (that’s less than 24 hours from now!) we will all be collectively glued to our Met Gala livestreams, taking in the red carpet in outfits decidedly more comfortable (and, alas, decidedly less fabulous) than the ones we will be seeing on screen. What to expect? Well here are the dates, dresses, and tables we know of so far:
Met Gala rumors are swirling, and this latest one reeks of bikini-clad desperation.
Survey says: probably.
This year’s Met Gala just got a lot more inclusive. According to one of the best press releases we received in a while, red carpet arrivals will be live-streamed for two glorious hours on the Metropolitan Museum website, Vogue.com, and Amazon.
On May 7, designers, models, actresses, and all sorts of fashionable peeps will come out to support the Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s Costume Institute exhibit honoring Miuccia Prada and Elsa Schiaparelli. (Even if Prada herself isn’t a fan.) But the opening Gala is as much about the attendees as it is the honorees, which means the invite list is a Very Big Deal.
