The secret's out! Lana Del Rey and Azealia Banks have revealed their dates to the highly-anticipated Met Gala (which is exactly one week away!), and *GASP* they're two of our FAVE designers. Earlier this year, J.Crew's creative director Jenna Lyons spilled the beans that she'd be hitting the red carpet with Lana Del Rey and Joseph Altuzarra, but Fashionista confirmed that it's actually JUST Lana and Joseph that are going together. Ooh la la! Azealia Banks revealed her date via Twitter (of course!) and said, "I can't wait for the MET ball! I'm going as Alexander Wang's date. He custom made my outfit and shoes ! !!!! It's soooo hot !" Wait, is this THE pair of shoes and dress she tweeted about awhile back? We hope so!

Azealia also dropped ANOTHER huge Met ball bomb: She'll be performing for Prada! She tweeted, "I've Been invited to Perform for PRADA next week in NYC! Gonna b so lush !! Let's see what new songs I debut there! #metball2012" Dang, Azealia is becoming THE high-fashion performer staple. First Chanel, then Kanye West's show, and now Prada. WERK!

We're SO stoked to see what couture ensembles Lana and Azealia will be wearing next Monday, and lucky for us, we can watch the whole shindig go down straight from our desks! Vogue.com will be livestreaming the red carpet from 6:30 to 8:30 on May 7 so, um, BRB, we have to pick out our Met Gala viewing outfit right NOW.
