The Met Gala is always a big night for fashion as celebrities showcase designers’ best gowns. The 2013 Met Ball on May 6 will make history as gowns by designers will be available to order straight off the red carpet.
Dresses by designers including Balmain, Rodarte, Nina Ricci and Wes Gordon will be available to order on May 7 through Moda Operandi’s Spotlight project, according to Vogue UK.
An unlimited number of dresses will be made to order, depending on demand. It’s not yet known which celebs will wear which designer.
"Events like the Met Gala offer some of the most spectacular fashion moments because they inspire experimentation," said Moda Operandi co-founder Lauren Santo Domingo. "We are thrilled to be able to provide women with access to the fashion from one of the world's most thrilling red carpet events."
Moda Operandi is an e-commerce site and sponsor of the Met’s Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibition, according to E! Online. The runway-to-retail innovator has also created a designer capsule collection for the Punk exhibition.
The Punk collection will "offer women the opportunity to capture the spirit of punk with pieces that balance high fashion and rebellion,” according to Moda Operandi founder Lauren Santo Domingo.
The punk-inspired collection will include clothing and accessories designed by Rodarte, Givency, Prabal Gurung, Balmain, and Dolce & Gabbana, according to MTV Style.
According to the Daily Telegraph, Moda Operandi has tried similar projects before, including allowing customers to buy Gwyneth Paltrow’s scandalous Antonio Berardi dress last week, the gold Prabal Gurung dress Jennifer Lawrence wore to ‘The Hunger Games’ premiere, and some outfits Anne Hathaway wore during her promotional tour for ‘The Dark Knight,’ as well as some looks from the Golden Globes.© 2013 Fashion & Style.com All rights reserved.
