Fascination with the glamorous Met Gala never seems to waver – and now fans will have unprecedented insight into the night’s fashionable fun! The A-list event is one of the most important on the fashion calendar, with a parade of dazzling couture gowns to prove it, and in 2015 a documentary will give an insider’s peek at the prestigious event.
Filmmaker Andrew Rossi will be shooting the documentary which focuses on the preparation for this year’s exhibition, China: Through the Looking Glass. Jennifer Lawrence will be co-hosting the stylish event on 4 May joined by Marissa Mayer, Gong Li and of course, iconic editor Anna Wintour.
The exhibition will feature representations of China, with over a hundred couture pieces from world’s biggest designers including Yves Saint Laurent, Jean Paul Gaultier and Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton.
Curator Andrew Bolton spoke to WWD about the display: “The West’s interest in China seems to be intensifying, and China’s cultural influence on the West seems to have reached new heights.”
With tickets to the gala reportedly costing $25,000 per person, the highly-anticipated documentary, created by Condé Nast Entertainment, Vogue and Relativity Studios, will allow those of us on a budget to experience all the glamour from the comfort of our own homes.
“This will be an extraordinary opportunity for a global audience to see what goes on before and after guests walk the red carpet,” Tucker Tooley, the president of Relativity said in a statement to Variety. “Including months of preparation for the exhibition and storied gala, culminating in the big opening night.”
A release date has yet to be confirmed, but anticipation has already been building for the insider glimpse at one of the world’s most star-studded events.
