A CONVERSATION

tonight is the met ball. the red carpet that has come to rival the oscars. this years event at the costume institute at the metropolitan museum of art will celebrate the opening of schiaparelli and prada: impossible conversations.

muccia prada who is alive and elsa schiaperelli, deceased, both natural provocateurs, tastemakers, italians, intellectuals and, of course, influential female designers. the show is concept driven and creating a conversation between these two ladies could be tricky but i’m sure it will be a stimulating journey joining these two formidable designers in a new, thrilling discourse. more to come on this.

for the first time you can watch the red carpet here today from 6:30 – 8:30 est. presented by vogue and amazon.com/fashion. hosted by william norwich and elettra wiedemann, the broadcast will also include interviews with gala co-chairs, including carey mulligan, miuccia prada and anna wintour, as well as, lots and lots of conversations with celebrities from the worlds of fashion, film, society, art and music.

until then please enjoy my favorite red carpet moments from the last 5 years of galas. next week i head to nyc, looking forward to seeing the show which runs from may 10th to august 19th. this year i’ll be watching on livestream, who knows, next year maybe i’ll see you on the red carpet- until then talk amongst yourselves- enjoy the conversation!
