It’s time, everyone. The 2013 Met Gala–or, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala, if you’re nastyis upon us. While we have really, really mixed feelings about this year’s themePunk: Chaos to Couture–and we know most of the attendees are nervous about committing (despite our helpful styling suggestions!) this is still the biggest red carpet event of the year.

No, really! Vogue‘s February issue features a beautifully shot Annie Leibovitz editorial consisting of well-dressed young women hanging out with various first responders. I’m glad Vogue helped raise money for hurricane relief, but does that give them license to do something this gross? Or maybe I’m wrong, and expensive fashion and poverty stricken disaster areas are just two great tastes that taste great together. How do you feel? More »
