More news is starting to trickle in regarding Monday’s Met Gala!
In addition to who’s wearing what and walking with whom, we know that Frank Ocean is slated to perform! Upon first thought, Ocean seems like an interesting choice for Anna Wintour‘s annual spectacular. His debut studio album, Channel Orange, was released in 2012 and he’s hardly a regular on the fashion circuit. But we’re never one to question Vogue’s EIC in her decision making.
After all, she courted Kanye West to perform last year, just before he dropped Yeezus. And we all know how that relationship has grown. Though Ocean has yet to set a release date, he’s been busy as of late working on his second album. Presumably, his hard work in the past few months will provide the soundtrack for the fashion elite’s epic evening. To top it all off, Ocean became friends with Riccardo Tisci at last year’s punk inspired Gala, meaning he’s in with the cool kids.
