The event that launched a million style.comslideshows is back—2012’s Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Ball is on! This year’s iteration of Vogue’s takeover of the Temple of Dendur celebrates an imagined series of conversations between Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada, with honorary chair (the ever-chic) Jeff Bezos. We guess the Amazon honcho/would-be next Steve Jobs knows something about fashion … after all, our Kindle is sylphlike and slim and is always dressed in summer whites. Other guests are likely to include just about every working actress, singer and model, though the recently wed Anna Wintour darling Carey Mulligan is to serve as co-chair of the event.
Metropolitan Museum of Art, invitation only.
