Tomorrow night, May 3, the Metropolitan museum will be full of this people, on what many considered the most fashionable event of the year or "the Oscars of the East Coast". This year's event has being planned by Sylvana Soto-Ward, a 28-year-old who is an ex-accesories editor promoted to special-events planner at Vogue. "I'm shocked the planning started so early, but it does. It takes almost a year. You get two months off and then right back at it," she said.
This year the ball is sponsored by Gap (last year it was Marc Jacobs and in 2008, Giorgio Armani) and it's dedicated to the fashion of american women from 1890 to 1940. Anna Wintour and Sylvana agreed that Gap is the best sponsor for this year's theme and also for what they're trying to show on their magazine, which is high-fashion clothes mixed with basics or more accesible pieces. Also helping on the event planning is the decorator Raúl Avilla.
Milla Jovovich in Marni.
Selma Blair in Marc Jacobs. I guess I love her more than her dress that's why she's on my favorites.
Emma Roberts in one of the best dresses I've seen from Atelier Versace.
Mary-Kate Olsen in Christian Lacroix Couture from Fall 2007. I like better the one from the runway with the puffy sleeves and the turquoise details.
Georgina Chapman in Marchesa.
♥♥♥♥♥ Blake Lively in Versace. I'm not in love with this dress, but I'm in love with her! And she has the most perfect boobs on earth.
Kirsten Dunst in Chanel Couture. Well, everyone hated and critized her, I think the dress is gorgeous and that she looks cute. Remember she's not Gisele or a sex symbol.
Miranda Kerr in a gorgeous dress from Jil Sander ♥
Lou Doillon in a dramatic dress designed by Olivier Theyskens for Nina Ricci.
And last: Momma Wintour in Chanel Couture.
