In case you haven’t been in the fashion loop, consider this your major wake-up call: The 2012 Costume Institute Gala is happening right now (6:30pm)! AND you pretty much have front-row tickets to be a part of the action. For reals! Starting now, Vogue, Amazon and The Metropolitan Museum of Art will all be live streaming the mega-exclusive event which coincides with this year’s exhbition, “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations”. Dubbed as the “Oscars of Fashion” by those in the know, this is a BIG DEAL and the first time ever that everyone is allowed to watch from their computers/smartphones and iPads. Peep Azealia Banks make her way through the red carpet on the arm of Alexander Wang and Michael Kors make an entrance with his fabulous posse of It-Girls, Kate Upton, Hilary Swank, Jessica Alba and Liu Wen. Make it a date!
