Miuccia Prada has reportedly taken control of planning the Costume Institute's upcoming Met Gala — even down to the smallest details.
Prada has been quite vocal on everything from the guest list to what kind of alcohol those guests will drink. Sources told Alexa that when it came time for event planners to choose a beverage sponsor for the event, Prada insisted on an Italian Prosecco brand. She also decided on the location of the afterparty and has created an exclusive list of people who are allowed to wear her designs to the party. Gala cochair Carey Mulligan is said to be among them.
Met Gala veteran Coco Rocha, however, is not. According to Alexa, Rocha is bucking the trend of attending the gala with a designer, and will instead walk the red carpet with her husband James Conran. She plans to wear a vintage Givenchy dress she bought a few months ago. "This is actually the first time I've ever worn something that wasn't fitted by the designer himself," she said. "I did take the vintage Givenchy piece to my friend Zac Posen and to Vogue and they all agreed that it fits perfectly, no need for tailoring!"
