THR is reporting that Jessica is expected to attend the this year’s MET Gala on May 5th in New York. Be sure to come back then for our coverage. We can’t wait to see what she is going to wear!
It is not without intention that this year’s May 5 Metropolitan Museum Gala and Costume Exhibit theme “Charles James: Beyond Fashion (1906-1978)” is diametrically opposed to last year’s raucous and rakish “Punk.” Considered one of the few true American couturiers, James perfected the art of the ballgown.
There’s no mandate for women, but the Jamesian-style ball gowns are expected to stun — and make group photos, as well as walking the Met’s stairs, challenging. THR hears attendance was booked fast and early: Prada will be represented by brand face Lupita Nyong’o and Michelle Dockery; Prabal Gurung by Zoe Saldana; Givenchy by Amanda Seyfried; J. Mendel by Taylor Swift; Diane von Furstenberg by Margot Robbie and Olivia Munn; Tommy Hilfiger by Zooey Deschanel; with Jessica Chastain, Emilia Clarke, Naomi Watts, Jessica Pare and Allison Williams also attending.
