With just one week left until the Met Gala, the Oscars of the fashion industry, we finally have a sneak peek at the star-studded guest list. Fashionista revealed the names of over 100 VIP Hollywood royalties and fashion insiders expected to walk the carpet, with many of last year’s big names unsurprisingly making a return to this year’s event. This year’s Met Ball theme and Costume Institute exhibit is titled Chinese Whispers: Tales of the East in Art, Film and Fashion with the gala taking place on 4 May.

If you are enticed to go, start saving the $25,000 (approximately SGD $33, 200) it would cost you to cop a ticket. But let’s be honest, it’s the fashion that we’ll all be paying attention to (and the abundant celebrity selfies). See below for the list of celebrities and designers expected to make an appearance.
