The Met Ball, an event not to be missed by anyone who is anyone in fashion will be held this Monday the 5th of May. Attendees will be more sophisticated than ever, strictly dressed in the theme ‘White Tie and Decorations’ in honour of British designer Charles James. Guests will look like royalty to climb the 72 steps in heavy couture to impress the queen of fashion herself Anna Wintour. Expect to see vintage, vintage and more vintage.
The red carpet will be filled with ball gowns, gloves, satin and a whole lot of diamonds, get ready to be jealous ladies! We’re talking high society, designers like Oscar de la renta, Dior, Balenciaga, Givenchy and Valentino.
I bet you’re wondering what eye candy to look out for too…don’t worry you won’t be disappointed. The men will look like the Prince of your dreams, with top hats, white waistcoats, gloves, cuff links, bow ties, and tail coats.
Who will be there?
Unfortunately beloved Gwenyth Paltrow declined her invitation this year, not really unexpected when she spoke out about how unimpressed she was with 2013’s event.
But not to worry…
Bradley Cooper will be along side Sarah Jessica Parker as cochair’s.
The Met Ball just wouldn’t be the same without SJP, she is the one to look out for on the red carpet. Each year we see her embracing each theme to the maximum, lets not forget that punk rockin gold and black headpiece.
Just to keep things interesting, Kanye West will also be attending and you never know what will happen when he graces these events with his presence. There’s no doubt Kim Kardashian will be right beside West, but let’s hope she makes a come back from last year’s get up. The skin-tight, busily printed dress caused her to be compared to a blimp and sofa.
Then there is the most anticipated attendee…First Lady Michelle Obama. Who, the morning of the gala is to cut the ribbon to the Anna Wintour Costume Center, previously the Costume Institute.
It seems the 2014 Met Ball will be an eventful night, make sure you check back in with SheSaid next week for the recap!
