Forget the Academy Awards. Forget Couture Fashion Week. The Met’s Costume Institute Gala is the most haute and stylish affair of the year. This year the gala honors the designs of Miuccia Prada and Elsa Schiaparelli and for the first time ever you can watch the red carpet live on May 7th on three different online outlets: vogue.com, metmuseum.org, and amazon.com. Supermodel Elettra Wiedemann and fashion journalist will be taking on the red carpet from 6:30-8:30pm, interviewing everyone from Anna Wintour to Miuccia Prada to the innumerable supermodels carrying their designer gowns up those iconic Metropolitan stairs.
In anticipation of this year’s ball, we take a look back at the standout style moments from sixteen stunning supermodels.
