Though we're still a few hours away from the real red carpet action, our sister site has already kicked off their live blog for tonight's Met Ball. Click over to read about confirmed celeb appearances, pictures from this morning's preview (including Anna Wintour and Michelle Obama having a serious girl moment) and which members of the Kardashian klan are "excited."
