Imagine if you could buy Solange’s 2012 Met Gala dress?
Moda Operandi, how do you keep making our 2013 Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art dreams come true? First there was the PUNK: Chaos to Couture inspired designer capsule collection, and now the runway-to-retail innovator is taking it one step further: come May 7th, you’ll actually be able to buy the dresses right off of the Met Gala red carpet. Details are limited, but Popsugar reports that the designers involved in the collab include Anthony Vaccarello, Wes Gordon, Balmain, Nina Ricci, and maybe more. Each of the designers worked alongside Moda Operandi’s Indre Rockefeller, who serves as Director of Ready-To-Wear for the site, on the sale, and although there is still no word as to which celebs will be wearing the get-em-now gowns, with designers like those we can only surmise that they’ll be major.
Last year some of the biggest stars of the year turned out for the Met Gala, with Beyonce, Florence Welch, Carey Mulligan and others turning out in INCREDIBLE gowns inspired by the Schiaparelli & Prada exhibit, and with this year’s punk theme, we’re eagerly awaiting the high, high, high fashion take on leather jackets and mohawks that we’re hoping will come floating down the red carpet come May 6th. Honestly, we’re a little nervous about the option to purchase the dresses, or, more precisely, our wallets are. Start your wish list by watching the Met Gala livestream on Moda Operandi at 7 PM EST on May 6, 2013.
