Finally, Vogue decided to pull back the curtain on its annual $25,000-per-ticket Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala. According to Variety, Vogue and Condé Nast Entertainment are partnering with Relativity Studios to produce and distribute a documentary that will chronicle the making of this year's Costume Institute exhibition and gala. Andrew Rossi, the guy behind Page One: Inside the New York Times and Ivory Tower, will direct.
"This will be an extraordinary opportunity for a global audience to see what goes on before and after guests walk the red carpet, including the months of preparation for the exhibition and storied gala, culminating in the big opening night," the president of Relativity Studios said in a statement. No release date has been set yet.
