Costume Institute Gala:The Met Ball

Tomorrow is the Costume Institute's famous Met Ball and I'm sure we all want to see what some of our favorite moguls, celebrities and models will be wearing to this prestigious event. The Work of legendary designer Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada will be celebrated this time at the Met, so expect to see plenty of vintage Schiaparelli gowns or Prada and Miu Miu cocktail dresses.

The Cut Blog has added a list (see at end of post)  of the designers and their dates and if it is like anything like last year some people just might get cut out of photos and ignored. I'd love to see what Beyoncé and Solange Knowles will be wearing this year since they both attended last year.

I vividly remember when top model Jourdan Dunn was famed photographer Mario Testino's date last year and they absolutely cropped her out of photos and didn't highlight her at all.

See her in the background?

Here's another shot of her in the background in her gorgeous Burberry gown. Hopefully it won't happen again, but we all know that it will since everything is based on rank and file or popularity in the media.

Desiree Rogers was also there with her ex-husband John W. Rogers and since she had resigned from the White House there was not one mention of her even attending the event. Anyway, I'm sure Jourdan will be photographed this year possibly dangling on the arm of Jason Wu or some other designer and if it is Jason Wu she can wear one of the gowns that I've highlighted below from his SS 2012 RTW collection.

My fantasy wish is that she's Jason Wu's date and is wearing something stunning from his SS 2012 RTW Collection. See the beautiful gowns below:

Like this!

Or even this from Jason Wu's Fall 2012 RTW. is also a sponsor this year and you can also watch the live action on their website and from 6:30 to 8:30 pm on Monday, May 7th.
