The Met's Costume Institute Gala's Glamorous Red Carpet

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.

In just a few short hours, Anna Wintour, Salma Hayek, Colin Firth and hundreds of pairs of Louboutins and Monolos will be walking the red carpet of the most glamorous fashion event of the year—The Gala for the Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute's Alexander McQueen retrospective. But as of 1pm today, workers were still setting up the area. Check out the slideshow above for a behind-the-scenes look at the preparations for the big event.
