The Final Countdown to the Best Party Ever

At 8 p.m. tonight, the Met's Costume Institute gala, a.k.a. the Best Party Ever, kicks off. While we're itching to get our heels on and into the press check-in line, fashion houses are still sending out harried press releases to inform us whom they're dressing. Dolce & Gabbana will dress Iman, David Bowie, and Scarlett Johansson, among others. Calvin Klein's got Liv Tyler, Fergie, and Rachel Bilson. Eva Longoria and Dita Von Teese will wear Marchesa. Ellen Barkin and the Olsen twins will swan down the red carpet in Wonder Woman–inspired garb by Diane Von Furstenberg. And our recent tastemaker Yigal Azrouël will dress Katie Lee Joel. We know you're all dying to know who's dressing us. Sadly, reporters are only allowed on the red carpet, so we're not getting too fancy, but we do have a fabulous shiny pair of shoes under our desk. And a cape and Batman mask, of course.
