There's no bigger fashion event than the Met Gala. With an exclusive invite-only guest list (which Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour hand selects) that boasts some of the biggest names in Hollywood, it's the city's hottest ticket in town.
Alongside Wintour, the biggest names on the roster are her co-chairs: Lady Gaga, Serena Williams, Harry Styles and Gucci's Alessandro Michele. All will be in attendance tonight, and with the Camp: Notes on Fashion theme, sure to bring their most extravagant looks to the red carpet.
Making up the largest portion of the event's attendees—43 percent to be exact—are the Hollywood elite. Expect Bradley Cooper, Jared Leto, Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong'o, as well as power couples Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas and Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds.
Representing the fashion contingent, which makes up 32 percent of the list, are Tom Ford, Donatella Versace, Miuccia Prada, Tommy Hilfiger, Bob Mackie, Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli and Givenchy's Clare Waight Keller.
Other confirmed notables include Cher, Katy Perry, Venus Williams, Kris Jenner, Lena Waithe, football player Cam Newton, Ryan Murphy, Annette de la Renta, Wendi Murdoch, Sean and Alexander Parker.
Rumor has it that Wintour also extended an invitation to Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, describing them in a Today Show interview as "my dream couple."
Last year, Wintour chaired the event with Amal Clooney, Rihanna and Donatella Versace as co-chairs.
