>> The First Wave of Costume Institute Gala Intel —Gap may be sponsoring this year's Costume Institute Gala on May 3, but Patrick Robinson won't be dressing co-chair Oprah Winfrey — Oscar de la Renta is doing those honors. Instead, Robinson is focusing on other initiatives — Gap is working with past collaborators Thakoon, Rodarte, and Alexander Wang, plus Sophie Theallet, to "dress the evening's brightest stars," reports Vogue. "Expect to see guests like Natalie Portman, Jessica Alba, and M.I.A taking in the 'American Woman' exhibition in tulle-trellised and crystal-adorned creations, which will be auctioned afterward at Gap's White Space concept store to benefit the museum." Gap is also launching three shirts in May — the Heiress (and hourglass shape), the ruffled Flapper, and the draped Screen Siren — to coincide with the American Woman theme.
