Every spring, celebrities from Rihanna to Larry David flock to the Met Gala, often taking the moment to showcase their most extravagant looks on the red carpet. As you can imagine there is a lot of work that goes behind planning the star-studded event and thanks to a new documentary titled The First Monday in May, we have a behind the scenes look at just what it takes to put everything together. To document the process, filmmaker Andrew Rossi followed Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour, Vogue Director of Special Projects Sylvana Ward Durrett, and Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton, who Wintour calls the visionary, as they organized everything from the costumes to RiRi's performance for last year's “China: Through the Looking Glass.”
Check out the trailer above. The First Monday in May will open at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 13.
