Finally, E! Will Cover the Met Gala Red Carpet for Normal People

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

It's a national tragedy that we weren't able to hear Giuliana Rancic's thoughts on the insane headpiece Sarah Jessica Parker wore to last year's Met Gala in real time, but thankfully, that won't be the case this time around. This year, for the first time ever, E! will be allowed to do its thing on the Met Gala red carpet.

In a move that will surely increase normies' awareness of what the biggest night in fashion is, even, E! will station beloved talking head Giuliana Rancic on the red carpet outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She'll be joined by Marie Claire editor Zanna Roberts Rossi, 2012 Miss USA Olivia Culpo, and stylist Johnny Wujek, while Catt Sadler and Zuri Hall will conduct interviews with stars. No word on what Giuliana will wear, but you can bet it'll be Wintour-approved (or more likely, chosen by Wintour herself).

Naturally, E!'s coverage won't come without a side of Fashion Police, which will air Tuesday at 8 p.m. and star Melissa Rivers, Tim Gunn, NeNe Leakes, Brad Goreski, and Margaret Cho. Live coverage starts at 7 p.m. on Monday.
