If, like me, you were inexplicably excluded from the guest list for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Benefit, one of the major fashion events of the year, don’t fret: you can get all dolled up and watch the red carpet proceedings without ever leaving home, thanks to the miracle of technology. For the first time ever it’ll be streamed live on three websites: the Met’s, Vogue.com, and Amazon.com/Fashion. It happens Monday, May 7, from 5:30 to 7:30 central time.
