The First Monday in May is nigh! Which means: While celebrities and anyone else Anna Wintour has deemed Met Gala-worthy are scurrying around town to put the finishing touches on their looks, sites like ours are working hard to prepare for the biggest night in fashion. (And boy, do we have some treats for you.) Before we give our goods away too early, let's figure out how you, dear readers, can watch the event go down from the comfort of your own home. It has all the makings to be a wild evening, from the avant-garde theme — "Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between" — to the co-hosts, including former Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy and, for some reason, Tom Brady.
Read on for our guide to tuning into the red carpet madness this Monday.
Vogue will stream a "360 red carpet experience" on Facebook Live
Vogue’s "Facebook Live of the Met Gala Red Carpet celebrated by Moët & Chandon" (full, official name) runs on Vogue's Facebook page from 7-8 p.m. EST on Monday. The "360 red carpet experience," in collaboration with Facebook Creative Shop, will include a 360-degree view of the night's red carpet arrivals. The livestream will also feature celebrities as they arrive, as well as "Moment" bubbles appearing periodically in interstitials that will add "a festive atmosphere to the broadcast." Oscar-winning visual effects company Digital Domain will man a multi-camera panorama of the red carpet.
E! to broadcast "Live From the Red Carpet: The 2017 Met Gala"
For the second year in a row, E! will broadcast its Met Gala show not on the red carpet, exactly, but 40-odd blocks south at 30 Rockefeller Plaza with Giuliana Rancic, Zanna Roberts Rassi, Kristin Cavallari and celebrity stylist Jason Bolden, while Brad Goreski and E! News Correspondent Sibley Scoles will be reporting live from the actual red carpet. A Met Gala-dedicated episode of "Fashion Police" with co-hosts Rancic, Goreski, Melissa Rivers, NeNe Leakes and Margaret Cho will air on Tuesday, May 2 at 8 p.m. EST/PST.
We'll be sure to update this list should any additional options arise, but in the meantime, make sure to check back here on Monday for all our live Met Gala coverage.
