Have you ever wondered what it’s like to attend a star-studded gala at the Met? For the first time in the history of the Museum’s Costume Institute Benefit, red carpet arrivals to the corresponding exhibition—this year, Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations—will be live streamed on their website. Tune in this evening from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. EST.
I will be arriving around 6:45 PM and everyone has been assigned an arrival time. Mine is earlier in the evening which will give us time to enjoy the exhibit. I’m wearing a black Prada gown. More on that in a while. Since I am a member of The Costume Institute , they sent a special email early this morning with the details. If you want to tune in just click on this link. http://www.metmuseum.org/metgala
