We were already pretty excited about the 2013 Met Gala, what with the awesome punk theme and Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci hosting. But a new announcement via Women's Wear Daily is getting us even more psyched: Beyonce has been named an honorary chair of the event!
Leave it to Anna Wintour to stack fashion's biggest night with an all-star cast. Already slated to host the annual event are Rooney Mara and Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci, both of whose dark, brooding sensibilities fit this year's theme, "Punk: Chaos to Couture."
Beyonce isn't exactly known for her punk style, but she does fit in with her co-chairs. Beyonce wore a dramatic Givenchy creation to last year's Met Gala, plus she's spent the 12 months since getting even cozier than ever with the fashion crowd. (You saw her Vogue cover, right?)
WWD notes the possibility that Bey will join co-hosts Wintour, Mara, Tisci and Lauren Santo Domingo on the greeting line (!), but there's no confirmation of that yet. But we're guessing this at least guarantees a timely arrival: last year, Beyonce left press and fans waiting until the very last moment and made a dramatic late entrance.
