Anna Wintour ‘Wants More Exclusivity’ at the Met Ball

Anna Wintour attends the "Bullets Over Broadway" opening night celebration at St. James Theatre on April 10, 2014 in New York City.

Of all the complaints to be made about the Met Costume Institute's annual gala — that it's "boiling" and "un-fun," for instance — the gripe that the event is too inclusive has yet to be voiced. Ticket prices for last year's event ran at $15,000, pretty much limiting the event to celebrities, designers, and super-rich people. And a dress could set you back $35,000. But apparently that's not enough for Anna Wintour: A source tells The Hollywood Reporter that she "wants more exclusivity" at this year's gala and is raising the cost of tickets to $25,000, a.k.a. the salary of the average Condé Nast assistant. Oh, and she's not backing off that white tie thing.

The article also reveals some pairings we'll be seeing come May 5: Prada will bring Lupita Nyong'o and Michelle Dockery; Zoe Saldana will go with pal Prabal Gurung; and Zooey Deschanel will be on the arm of collaboration partner Tommy Hilfiger. Other attendees will include Amanda Seyfried (Givenchy), Taylor Swift (J.Mendel), Olivia Munn, and Wolf of Wall Street's Margot Robbie (DVF). Jessica Chastain, Emilia Clarke, Naomi Watts, Jessica Paré, and Allison Williams will be there, too, though it's not yet clear with whom.

Also of note: Vogue cover girl Kim Kardashian is apparently on the invite list. But how will she top glove-sleeves?
