Met Gala to live-stream red carpet arrivals

The Metropolitan Museum is planning to live-stream from the red carpet for the first time at this year‘s Costume Institute Gala.

Coverage of celebrity arrivals will take place between 6.30pm and 8.30pm (EST) on Monday May 7, and be aired online via Vogue.com, Amazon.com/fashion and Metmuseum.org/metgala.

The stream will be hosted by Vogue‘s William Norwich and Elettra Wiedemann, who will interview  gala co-chairs including Carey Mulligan, Miuccia Prada and Anna Wintour, as well as a selection of other stars.

Throughout the two hours, there will also be additional pre-taped segments featuring the history of the benefit and insights into this year’s exhibition, Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations.

Norwich and Wiedemann are also inviting consumers to send in their own questions for the A-list guests by using the #MetQuestions hashtag on Twitter. Furthermore, on the day itself, the duo will be giving fans an inside look at the prep for the gala through www.facebook.com/celebs.
