2010 MET Costume Institute Gala : The American Woman
Quote:
DRESS YOU UP: Gap, which is sponsoring the “American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity” exhibit, will be dressing quite a number of celebrities at Monday night’s kick-off Costume Institute benefit. The chain and its executive vice president of global design, Patrick Robinson, collaborated with several young designers to create eveningwear for the occasion. M.I.A. and Zoë Kravitz are slated to come to the Met in Alexander Wang for Gap; Kirsten Dunst and Jamie Bochert will wear Rodarte for Gap; Kerry Washington and Riley Keough will sport Thakoon for Gap, and Sophie Theallet for Gap will be worn by Jessica Alba and Vera Farmiga. Gap is offering the eight dresses in a silent auction at gap.com/gownauction from May 4 to 31 with proceeds benefiting the Costume Institute. Two days after the party, Gap will start showcasing the dresses at its pop-up store at 680 Fifth Avenue. The shop will also offer special Gap T-shirts inspired by the themes in the Costume Institute exhibit.

PARTY MATES: Speaking of the Costume Institute benefit, speculation about designers and the celebrities they will bring to the party is heating up. Ralph Lauren and his wife, Ricky, will host Taylor Swift, Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake, while Kenneth Cole is bringing Emmy Rossum, Stanley Tucci and Matthew Morrison from “Glee.” Other designers have still to finalize their plans. Michael Kors will be bringing Brooke Shields, Diane Lane, Carolyn Murphy, Natasha Poly and Chanel Iman.

I'm still trying to get a little bit excited about seeing this exhibit, but just like last year I'm just kind of "meh" about it all.

The news that Gap is going to be dressing people hasn't done much to raise my excitement about the event, either. Last year's red carpet was largely disappointing, so I'm kind of bracing for the same this year.

They may have well just made it Michelle Obama themed and be done with it.
The Gap thing is just dumb, this is supopsed to be one of the best dressed events of the year, when people really should be making an effort, and they're going to be turning up in Gap!

Oh my! Cate Blanchett was the name that first caught my attention. She and the supermodels are enough to make me enjoy this event. Also love Sofia, SJP and Keira! I'm kind of surprised Keira will be there, though. She is quite private!

Lady Gaga with Miuccia? That's such an odd pairing. I don't know whether to be excited or to be bewildered.... I wonder what Miuccia will put on her? I hope something better than what Armani did for her during the Grammys. And it's her first time coming, no?

And Michael Kors not taking Carmen Kass? What a disappointment. I could make do without Chanel and replace her with Carmen.

Can't wait for the pictures.

I'm expecting a lot of safe Ralph Lauren-esque outfits though.

Looking forward to see Cate and Natalia the most. The rest will probably be boring anyway.
