Who's Taking Whom To The Met Ball?

If you were to ask my opinion, I would say that the Met Ball is more important (in terms of the fashion world) than the Oscar’s. Only the very best, and most Elite celebrities are invited to celebrate the festivities, and fashion lovers (such as myself) wait all year to see the outcome.

Since it’s such a major event, speculation leading up to the actual date grows stronger each and every day. Who’s wearing what? Who’s bringing whom? These are all questions asked during this week. Since we can only guess as to who’s going to be wearing what designer (we already know there’s going to be a heavy punk movement), all we have the answers to, (as of right now) is who’s bringing whom to the event.

Here’s a current list of dates for this year’s Met Ball:

-Michael Kors is taking Jennifer Lopez
