Joining in on quite the big evening in the Big Apple, Mary Kate Olsen turned up for the ‘Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations’ 2012 Costume Institute Gala in New York City on Monday (May 7).
The former “Full House” star meandered about the Metropolitan Museum of Art venue while clad in one of her own The Row frocks teamed with Christian Louboutin footwear and Fred Leighton jewels.
The annual fete finds actress Carey Mulligan acting as honorary co-chair valongside designer Miuccia Prada and US Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, while Azealia Banks is lined up to perform.
As for the celebratory occasion, this year’s rendition of the Met gala ushers in the ‘Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations’ exhibition exploring “the striking affinities between Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada, two Italian designers from different eras.”
The display is described as being “inspired by Miguel Covarrubias’s “Impossible Interviews” for Vanity Fair in the 1930s while featuring “orchestrated conversations between these iconic women to suggest new readings of their most innovative work.”
