The Met Ball is next Monday. And since this is the "Oscars of Fashion," our New York editors have compiled a handy list of—well—everything they know about the glitzy function. Some key facts: The host committee is peppered with megawatt stars, including Sarah Jessica Parker and Bradley Cooper. The event will celebrate the opening of the Charles James exhibit at the newly named Anna Wintour Costume Center, and tickets are a mere $25,000 a pop. The dress code? White Tie. Get the whole scoop here, and tune into Racked New York on Monday for a liveblog account of the ball. [Racked New York]
