We Got a Special Look at Where the Stars Got Ready for Met Gala
As you might know, this past Monday (and on Cinco de Mayo no less) fashion, style, and film influencers, attended the 2014 Costume Institute Met Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. What you might not know, is that just as many of the bold name attendees, including the evening’s host Anna Wintour, got dolled up at Upper East Side’s The Mark Hotel. And, as luck would have it, we got to see the action up close. As you would imagine the venue was buzzing, the most special way.
Photographers arrived early to claim their spots. Celebrity hair and makeup artist including Kevin Paves and Ted Gibson, waited patiently in the lobby for their canvas to arrive. Handlers arrived with dresses (one dress delivery took four people to hoist onto the elevator). Staffers listen as handlers arranged proper car service. In the midst of the action celebs like Victoria and David Beckham as well as Gabrielle Union arrived to flashing lights.
Other stars that called home as they prepared for the Met Gala include Lupita Nyong’o, Lily Donaldson, Margot Robbie, Karolina Kurková, Adele Exarchopoulos, Domenico Dolce, Elizabeth Olsen, Dianna Agron, Giovanna Battaglia, Monica Bellucci, Douglas Booth, Bianca Brandolini, Coco Brandoini, Joy Bryant, Arizona Muse, Eddie Redmayne, Lord Arthur Mornington, Sarah Paulson, Bee Shaffer, Andre Leon Talley, Stella Tennant, Mario Testino, Gabrielle Union, Sukie Waterhouse and many more.
