Anna Wintour Wears Prada to the 2012 Met Gala

Let The Devil Wears Prada references begin. Tonight Anna Wintour will be greeting her guests atop The Metropolitan Museum of Art's iconic steps in a custom Prada gown. “I’m wearing Prada’s homage to Elsa Schiaparelli” the editrix said. It's a fitting choice for the editrix as this evening's festivities, which raised over $11 million for The Costume Institute, are in celebration of the museum's latest exhibition, Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations. “They both believe in breaking the rules of fashion, which is something I believe in too,” said Wintour of the two female design talents.
