Miucca Prada is micromanaging this year's Met Ball down to the very last detail, according the the New York Post. From the invite list and alcohol (Italian prosecco, of course) to the location of the after-party, all is said to require the designer's OK.
Additionally, Prada is reportedly very strict about who will be wearing the designer's pieces at the event, since the brand "has a particular type.” And that type does not appear to include model and Gala vet Coco Rocha. According to the Post, Rocha will walk the red carpet with her husband James Conran in a vintage Givenchy dress she bought a few months ago. "This is actually the first time I've ever worn something that wasn't fitted by the designer himself," she told the paper. The up side? "I did take the vintage Givenchy piece to my friend Zac Posen and to Vogue and they all agreed that it fits perfectly, no need for tailoring!"
