The Met Gala is often called fashion's Oscars, but honestly, we think it's bigger than that. Where else do you get every major Oscar star and fashion's most powerful names all together on one red carpet?
At the Metropolitan Museum of Art, of course, where Anna Wintour, Miuccia Prada and Carey Mulligan are welcoming the most glamorous stars on Earth at tonight's Costume Institute's annual ball. This year, fashion's finest are celebrating Prada as well as Elsa Schiaparelli, who together comprise the Costume Institute's new exhibition, "Impossible Conversations."
