Met Gala Red Carpet Livestream

For the first time in its history, the red carpet arrivals at The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Benefit will be live-streamed online on Monday, May 7, 2012, from 6:30-8:30PM (EST), on the Vogue,, and the Met’s website.

This year’s Costume Institute exhibit is Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations.

The livestreaming will be hosted by Vogue’s William Norwich and Elettra Wiedemann (daughter of Isabella Rossellini) and will include interviews with gala co-chairs, including Carey Mulligan, Miuccia Prada, and Anna Wintour.

The hosts will also ask attending celebrities five additional questions chosen from viewer submissions on Twitter (#MetQuestions) during the streaming.

My question will be, “Anna, who are you wearing?”

These are some of my favorite looks of hers from Met Galas in the past.

That is exciting!
I love that first dress you featured. It's quite dramatic!

Hi Adrienne, I liked that dress too, even though I believe it was mildly panned in the press. And I LOVE the second dress, the silver one. I know that had negative comments because it was rainy and humid that night and there was in Anna, in long sleeves and a jacket. I don't care, I loved it anyway and obviously she did too. XO, Jill

Drooling over the second dress and that jacket! Critics, meh what do they know? She looked fab!

Hi Veshoevius! I'm with you, the second dress is so great. I need to find out who made it. I want to say Chanel, but could be wrong. The more I see it, the more I love it! XO, Jill

I like the 3rd dress.
It must be challenging being the daughter of such a stylish mum ^_^
Have a nice weekend!

Hi Hang, how are you? Bee is so gorgeous herself and her style seems really effortless and classic. I love that she attends the Met Gala with her mom. You never see pictures of Anna's son! XO, Jill

Hi Terri, are you going to watch the livestream? I will look for you on Twitter because I'm definitely tweeting about it that night! XO, Jill

Hi Jeannie, another vote for the second dress! I know Anna wears practically a uniform during the day (cardigan, skirt, Manolo strappy sandals) but she pulls out all the stops for black-tie events and I can't wait to see what she is wearing the evening of May 7. XO, Jill
