And no ones knows how to get ready like really, really famous people who basically get their photograph taken for a living. Although social media isn't permitted inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the celebrities in attendance cannot be stopped from 'gramming their hair, makeup, and gowns from a day full of primping. Let's follow along.

Katie Holmes is about to start glamming for tonight's festivities with her beloved team. In her Instagram caption, the actress revealed that she'll be wearing Zac Posen.


Roberto Cavalli's Twitter account has teased one of Peter Dundas's first creations for tonight. Could this be a snippet of Kim Kardashian's gown?


Burberry has revealed a sneak peek of what they'll be putting on Naomi Campbell tonight. It will feature sequins, feathers, and one hell of a deep-V.


Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad has revealed that she will be wearing Calvin Klein to the 2015 Met Ball, Instagramming a note from the fashion house's Women's Creative Director. #TheBlondeSaladWearsCalvin is a hashtag that is happening.


After her final fitting before the Met Ball, Kim Kardashian announced that she will be wearing Peter Dundas's first dress for Roberto Cavalli. A previous fitting lasted a whole two hours, so you can imagine that this thing will be a work of art.

Kendall had a morning fitting with Francisco Costa, so expect a non-denim Calvin Klein number on the model. Jenner's Met Ball look will certainly be the fanciest post under the #MyCalvin's hashtag.

Kim Kardashian got her glow on last night, receiving a spray tan in preparation for the Met Ball. Her tanning expert traveled all the way to New York to make sure the reality star is evenly bronzed and streak-free.
