Met Ball 2012: So What Are You Doing May 7?

Ashley Greene in Donna Karan at last year's event

It isn’t long until the Met Ball 2012, just less than two weeks, but I am already getting excited about it after finding some celebrities have already decided what they will be wearing, and at the moment even though Miuccia Prada is co-chair, it seems Donna Karan is going to make an entrance as she has already signed up Ashley Greene and Nina Dobrev to wear her designs.

So if I wasn’t excited enough, I then hear the news today that this year’s Met Ball red carpet will be live-stream, yeah I hear you all cry, which means you all know what I will be doing on May 7 – I’ll be live tweeting/blogging and generally getting OTT excited at all the gorgeous gowns from the hours of 11:30pm to 1:30am, it is like the Oscars night all over again!!!

Event sponsors Amazon, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Vogue, will all be live-streaming arrivals on their websites, and all the stars will be interviewed by William Norwich and model Elettra Wiedemann, which means it is going to be a lot more high-brow than my usual E! coverage!

So who can we expect? Other than Ashley Greene and Nina Dobrev who are both guests of Donna Karan, I am expecting greatness from co-chair Carey Mulligan who will probably be working Prada, as well as models Coco Rocha and Crystal Renn who are regulars to the Met Ball, and I am so hoping that the rumours that Jennifer Lopez is to perform as she always knows how to work a red carpet.

Last year I loved so many of the looks from Rihanna’s sexy Stella McCartney gown giving Rosie Huntington-Whiteley a run for her money in her rose silk Burberry gown, and then there was the gorgeous Isabel Lucas who took my best dressed accolade in that exquisite pleated coral Louis Vuitton gown and that amazing gold headpiece. Just thinking about last year makes me excited – I have a feeling that it is going to be a great night.

So questions is – will you be joining me and staying up to watch?
