We're slowly uncovering the all-important mystery of who will wear what to the Met Costume Institute gala. Admit it — the suspense is killing you. Now, many designers treat such matters like official CIA business, hardly deigning to reveal a scrap of info about what they're designing or whom they're dressing. Vera Wang is not one of those designers. At Maria Sharapova's birthday party at Tenjune last night, we casually asked her what she was up to these days, and she spilled all types of beans. "I’m busy getting women ready for the Met gala more than anything else," she said. Ooh. Who? Who? "A few ladies. Melania Trump and Karolina Kurkova, so there’s a wide range," she said. They both sound like the Über-sexy types to us, but okay! Sadly, none of her gals are asking for superhero styles in honor of the new exhibit. "Nobody has come to me with that yet, although I offered. I really did offer some techno — almost figure-skating-type wear. I don’t know if there’s gonna be a lot of superheroes at this. I can’t predict quite yet."
Meanwhile, though Sharapova is a tennis star and gala hostess Anna Wintour adores the sport, the birthday girl won't be attending. "I got a couple of invitations. Actually, Anna invited me, but I will be playing a tournament in Rome." Oh my God, she said no to Anna?!
Across town, at Dita von Teese's Cointreau event at the Angel Orensanz Foundation, Heatherette designer Richie Rich said he also probably wouldn't attend the Costume Institute gala. "I want to go, but I'm not sure. I think I might be out of town," he said. "I'm all about superheroes." So he should call Anna and wrangle a ticket! "I wouldn't call Anna, but I'd call somebody I know through all that. Those circles. Or I'd hang on Tinsley Mortimer and walk in on her." —Randi Eichenbaum, Lauren Salazar, and Tim Murphy
