The 2018 Met Gala is days away, which means the world’s most famous fashion designers and their celebrity “dates” are getting ready to walk the red carpet on the first Monday in May. They’re doing their final dress (or tux!) fittings, deciding on hair and makeup, and making all other necessary preparations for fashion’s most major event of the year (really, its only rival is the Oscars, and even that’s up for debate). On Monday, May 7, actors, pop stars, sports pros, models, and more will climb the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City to join this year’s hosts—Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, Amal Clooney, Rihanna, and Donatella Versace at the event, which benefits the museum’s Costume Institute.
How to watch the arrivals and see all the incredible fashion in real time? There’s only one official way: through Vogue‘s various platforms.
On May 7, the publication will have exclusive content across its website and social accounts, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled, especially on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. (Disclosure: Vogue and Glamour are both published by Condé Nast Publishing.)
Then, E! will once again be hosting a “Live From the Red Carpet” dispatch on May 7—though, the network won’t physically be live at the event, rather offering its signature fashion commentary remotely.
Finally, you can follow your favorite celebrities who will be attending the 2018 Met Gala. Though the guest list isn’t revealed until attendees actually step on the red carpet, many of your favorites—like co-chair Rihanna!—will likely be sharing the process of getting ready all day long. Though, remember: Once celebrities enter the event, there’s a “no selfie” policy… until the after parties, that is.
