The 2010 Met Ball only recently came and went, but already, we have cryptic hints of what next year's theme for the event will be. Yes, there's a super-elite committee - the Friends of the Costume Institute - who help plan the vibe for each year's Costume Institute Gala as long as a year in advance.
After honouring Andrew Bolton, the curator of the Met, at an annual dinner in LA last week, the Friends - plus the likes of the Rodarte girls and Monique L'huillier - apparently allowed one of their secrets to slip to WWD. Harold Koda, curator-in-charge of the Costume Institute, said only this: “It involves a lot of drunk Brits. You’ll want to wear something that you can lift your arms in, maybe show some cleavage.”
The themes Anglomania, Superheroes and Model as Muse already have been taken. What do you think the 2011 theme could be?
