The Met Gala Is Getting the Documentary Treatment
Looks like we'll be seeing Anna Wintour on the big screen soon.
The Met Gala, fashion's version of the Oscars, is finally letting outsiders get a taste of the exclusive event with its own documentary. In partnership with Condé Nast Entertainment and Vogue, Relativity Studios will produce and distribute the doc, which will focus on the makings of this year's Costume Institute exhibition theme, titled "China: Through the Looking Glass," and the star-studded gala.
While the title and release date of the film has yet to be disclosed, it will be directed by Andrew Rossi, whose film credits include Page One: Inside the New York Times (2011) and Ivory Tower (2014).
This year's gala will be co-chaired by Jennifer Lawrence, Marissa Mayer, Wendi Murdoch, Gong Li, and of course, Anna Wintour. As for what we can expect to see on the red carpet?
"There will be a lot of red, gold, chinois embroidery and Chinese porcelain-inspired prints," one Hollywood fashion insider tells The Hollywood Reporter, "The designers have all gone back to school, studying the history of China's movie and opera stars."
