Met Gala to Live Stream Red Carpet 2012

Met Gala Red Carpet to Be Live Streamed For the First Time



>> The Metropolitan Museum will broadcast the red-carpet arrivals for its Costume Institute Gala for the first time ever this year, and viewers can choose among three websites to watch it on.

Vogue.com, MetMuseum.org, and Amazon.com — which is sponsoring this year's exhibit, Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations — will all live stream the celebrities and designers walking into the museum from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on May 7. Fashion journalist and longtime Vogue contributor William Norwich and model Elettra Wiedemann will man the red carpet, interviewing notable attendees like Anna Wintour, Miuccia Prada, and Carey Mulligan.

Viewers can submit questions for Norwich and Wiedemann to ask celebrities on Twitter with the hashtag #metquestions. The live stream will also include pretaped segments about the Costume Institute's history and this year's exhibit.

While the live streams won't differ across the three sites, the Met's website will feature additional content and information about the exhibit, including interviews with its curators Andrew Bolton and Harold Koda. Vogue's site, meanwhile, will focus on giving readers an inside look at the gala and a video of this year's unknown musical guest.
