It's Met Ball day! We're gearing up for all the festivities, which we'll be live tweeting at 6:30pm EST today when the red carpet livestream begins. Until then, we're diligently keeping track of Twitter and our inboxes to see what kind of preparation attendees are doing and any last minute updates we can glean.

We'll be updating this post through the afternoon so check back for new details! (And in case you missed it, check out our first Met Ball roundup of dates and dresses here.)

Click through for some more juicy Met Ball tidbits:

Coco Rocha is wearing a wine-stained gown that belonged to Elizabeth Taylor: Coco confirmed to USA Today that she'll be wearing a vintage (stained) Givenchy gown that belonged to Elizabeth Taylor. But Vogue said it was OK to wear:

"If you look carefully, you can see the suit has this very faint red wine stain on it. After I had it cleaned I took it to show the editors at Vogue and we could still see the stain. We all agreed that since it was Liz Taylor's wine stain, it's OK to wear as is."

Alexa Chung is spending the whole day like this: "Entire day will be dedicated to practicing walking in heels up steps without falling" (per her Twitter). And she also may be going with Karen Elson as her date?:
