The Fashion Oscars: Expectations from THE MET GALA 2014

Waiting impatiently for this year's biggest event can also term it as 'The Fashion Oscars' which is just a few days away from now coinciding with Cinco de Mayo : The MET GALA 2014 !

So what is it that makes it so special this year?

First Lady Michelle Obama will cut the ribbon on the exhibit—and Anna Wintour's gallery—the morning of May 5th. She will also speak at the ceremony, but it's unclear if she'll attend the gala.
This year's exhibit will honour Charles James: Beyond Fashion, a great American couturier. Nearly every important work of James' career will be on display, spanning his career from the early '20s to the late '70s. This is the first single-designer show since 2011's ode to Alexander McQueen.

The Cost of Fashion
But the actual news is this year the attendees will have to shell out a little more from their deep pockets as the tickets are costing a whopping $25,000.

Strict Dress Code
And the Oh so Immaculate Dress Code this year : The White Tie and Decorations
Its a total Vintage Royal theme. A surge of evening gloves and jewelled themed gowns are expected from the ladies. French glovemakers Perrin Paris are expected to cover the digits of a number of attendees. As for the men A black tailcoat, a waistcoat, a wing-collared shirt, and white bow tie,bonus accessory to keep an eye out for: Top hats. What makes me curious is to see the 'Decoration' part, I'm guessing some medals or something like a State Affairs event style (would be interesting). So there will be hardly any room for the worst dressed this year, just Ladies n Gentlemen's !

The Expected Attendees So Far

   Prada: Lupita Nyong'o, Michelle Dockery
   Prabal Gurung: Zoe Saldana
   Givenchy: Amanda Seyfried
   J. Mendel: Taylor Swift
   Diane von Furstenberg: Margot Robbie, Olivia Munn
   Tommy Hilfiger: Zooey Deschanel

Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz will be in attendance with a mystery celebrity, and not with in house model Emma Stone. Other guests include Jessica Chastain, Emilia Clarke, Naomi Watts, Jessica Pare, Allison Williams, and current cover girl Kim Kardashian.

Let's wait with bated breath for the Most Royal Turnout Event of this Year (till then let me polish my Etiquette!)
