The First Monday in May

Vogue is coming out with a documentary… again.

Their first run was a film called The September Issue, documenting the making of the magazine’s biggest annual issue. This time, it gives us a behind the scenes look at one of the most coveted events in New York, the Met Gala. The Met Gala happens every year, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, on the first Monday of May (hence the title) to celebrate the opening of the new exhibit at the Costume Institute. Last year’s exhibit was “China: Through the Looking Glass” and the movie gives us a look at everything that went into creating the exhibit and the gala itself, which hosts some of the biggest celebrities and names in fashion. The trailer was just released and we see a few famous faces already from Anna Wintour to Karl Lagerfeld. The film is set to open the Tribeca Film Festival on April 13th. We can’t wait to see it!

  • Looking forward to seeing it.
    (I find it significant that not only does John Galliano feature in the documentary, but he has been put into the trailer. A sure sign that Vogue/Anna Wintour considers he has done his penance and is now back in the fashion family?)

  • Would be good to see Galliano back. His work is inventive, creative and involves incredible details and technique. He has a real appreciation and understanding of ALL aspects of creating haute couture garments. His last Dior collection was phenomenal — there was a movie made about one creation in particular, but only shown to the public a couple of times before being hidden away,…..I hope they bring the film back sometime. It would be neat to see it again.

    Here’s the dress that the movie was about and there’s a little bit about the movie at the bottom. It’s hard to convey how intricate the creative process was to make this garment and the number of people involved — each of them a true artist.

    A tour de force!

    I still watch the September Issue regularly and I really enjoy watching the behind-the-scenes clips they added in the extra footage. I’m looking forward to seeing this when it comes out!

  • A contrarian view, no double, however, I think Kate Moss looks absurd in that dress and hairdo. With amazing bone structure, she doesn’t have to do much to look great, and usually does, but here she is trying far too hard (or somebody has put her up to it).

  • Ooh can’t wait to see it! x

    sounds like a fun film. being a non New Yorker, I don’t fully understand the significance of the Met Gala (aside from seeing the pics in mags and Bill Cunningham coverage). but it sounds like an interesting theme too.
