Rihanna in Guo Pei the last year’s Met Gala
There was a time when the Academy Awards was considered fashion’s biggest night of the year. No longer.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Gala (a.k.a. the Met Gala), has usurped much of the red-carpet spotlight—and if you need proof, just take a moment to recall Rihanna’s headline-making, meme-inspiring, 55-pound canary yellow caped entrance at last year’s gala to celebrate the exhibit, China: Through the Looking Glass. So, in terms of fashion importance the Met Gala and the Oscars are pretty much neck-and-neck.
And on April 15, we’ll all be able to get an inside look at what goes on behind the scenes in producing the internationally acclaimed event, with a documentary The First Monday in May. The film follows Vogue editor-in-chief and Conde Nast artistic director Anna Wintour and the magazine’s director of special projects, Sylvana Ward Durrett, as they pull out all the stops, from the invitation to the dresses and, yes, the seating arrangements, (Here’s hoping we’ll find out how RiRi sat down for dinner in her weighty couture!)
Here’s an exclusive clip of the documentary, before it hits theaters next month:
