Get an all-access app to the Met Ball for your iPad
Wednesday 27 April 2011
On the heels of William and Kate's wedding comes another premium society event that's almost as hard to get into: the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala, in short, the Met Ball, on May 2. Now, you can get closer to the fashion and stars than ever before with a new app released by
The event launches the Costume Institute's annual exhibition, which this year focuses on the "Savage Beauty" of Alexander McQueen's designs: the more than 100 exhibits include signature pieces such as the bumster trouser, the kimono jacket, and the Origami frock coat. A preview of the display will be available as part of the free app, guided by curator Andrew Bolton.
But everyone can get into the exhibition once it has been inaugurated - what fashion fans will be dying to access is the gala event itself: singers Janelle Monáe and Bruno Mars will take them along for the ride in the app's section My First Met Gala, and celebrity performances as well as "intimate" party coverage are also part of the package.
For all those interested in the previous galas, there's a five-year video and photo retrospective of the Costume Institute's balls and exhibitions from 2006's "AngloMania" to 2010's "American Woman."
