The Met's Prada & Schiaparelli Exhibit Wasn't A Hit

schiaparelli-and-prada-met-exhibit-low-attendance.jpg

That's a wrap!

The Met's Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations exhibit came to a close on Sunday and attendance was wayyyy down.

Compared to last year's record-breaking Alexander McQueen exhibit, which was viewed by more than 661,000 people, only 339,838 came out to see Schiaparelli and Prada.

Even though the McQueen exhibit was extended twice, the numbers are still pretty disappointing, but not exactly surprising either.

Hopefully next year's will be more inneresting.

J.Lo To Perform At The Met Gala???

jennifer lopez costume institute gala performer rumor

This is so MAJ!

Rumor has it J.Lo will be performing at this year's Costume Institute Gala!

Vogue is denying their April cover girl will get On the Floor, but considering the event is a month and a half away we're not surprised.

Personally, we think J.Lo would be the perfect performer. She's always been a loyal attendee of the event and with all her success over the last year, it only makes sense for her shake her thing for Anna Wintour.

Check out all her looks from previous gala ceremonies (below)! And tell us…would U like to see her perform???

Rumor has it next year's exhibit will focus on the work of Miuccia Prada and Coco Chanel's biggest rival Elsa Schiaparelli!

Sounds promising.
