Anyone else thinking about the Met Gala?!

On Monday, May 2nd, the fashion world's biggest designers will gather to a celebrity packed house for the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala, more commonly known as the Met Gala - though there is nothing common about it.

The star-studded event, labeled as the Oscars of Fashion by Andre Leon Tally, will deliver a red carpet like no other. Who'll be the most creative, who will play it safe and which celebs will be show-stoppers?

This year's theme is “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology” and the Costume Institute exhibition will feature more than 100 haute couture and ready-to-wear pieces.

Andrew Bolton, curator of the Costume Institute had this to say about the exhibit to Vogue: “Traditionally, the distinction between the haute couture and prêt-à-porter was based on the handmade and the machine-made... But recently this distinction has become increasingly blurred as both disciplines have embraced the practices and techniques of the other.”

This exclusive fashion party has a guest list of about 600 A-listers and quite the impressive chairing committee to include Taylor Swift, Idris Elba, Jonathan Ive and Anna WintourNicolas Ghesquière, Karl Lagerfeld, and Miuccia Prada will serve as honorary chairs.
