Here's Who to Watch For on the Met Gala Red Carpet

By Gary Duff | May 6, 2019 | Culture

With just a few hours left before the Met Gala kicks off, here's who our team is excited to see hit the red carpet at this year's annual event.

Lady Gaga

"After a year of firsts—including her first Oscar win—there's nobody I'm looking more forward to seeing on the Met's red carpet than Lady Gaga. This year's theme was tailor-made for even her most boundary-pushing looks." —Lynn Scotti, Group Publisher

Hamish Bowles

"I ran into Hamish Bowles at the press preview this morning and he was (uncharacteristically) wearing a ski hat covering his hair. I can only imagine that something fabulous will be revealed tonight from under that cap. My guess is that pink will be a huge trend!" —James Aguiar, VP of Creative/Fashion Director

Tabitha Simmons

"I adore Tabitha Simmons' personal style! The shoe designer-stylist always wears the most fantastically embroidered pieces to events and the MET is, of course, no exception. For the past two years she has worn embellished pink gowns. I wonder if she'll shock us in pink tonight!" —Sarah Bray, Editor in Chief of Gotham



Cher wore a fitted Marc Jacobs gown to the Met Gala in 2015.

"I've got my fingers crossed that rumors of a Cher appearance are true! After decades of serving us legendary looks, I expect nothing but the best from her at fashion's biggest night." —Gary Duff, Digital Editor
