Celebrity Jewel: Colored Gems Reigned at the MET Gala!


The Met's Spring 2012 Costume Institute exhibition, Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations, explores the striking affinities between Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada, two Italian designers from different eras. Inspired by Miguel Covarrubias's "Impossible Interviews" for Vanity Fair in the 1930s, the exhibition features orchestrated conversations between these iconic women to suggest new readings of their most innovative work. Iconic ensembles are presented with videos of simulated conversations between Schiaparelli and Prada directed by Baz Luhrmann, focusing on how both women explore similar themes in their work through very different approaches.


The 2012 Costume Institute Gala Benefit was co-chaired by CareyMulliganVogue editor Anna Wintour, and designer Miuccia Prada.  The exhibition is made possible by Amazon, with additional support by Condé Nast.

...according to Marie Clare, the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala is the fashion world's most buzzed-about red carpet event of the year that celebrates the current exhibition...so it was a given that there would be a lot of Prada!
