It’d be a shocker if Beyoncé didn’t wear Givenchy, we reckon it’s a safe bet. What isn’t a safe bet however is that she’ll pull something from the mainline. This gown is a dead cert to be custom-made, but here are the ready-to-wear options available for the diva. We’re not convinced any of them are quite ‘enough’ considering last year’s black and purple feathered super-sheer creation.


The brow-lady has not yet done a Met Ball, so this year seems like a prime opportunity. As a Burberry girl there’s potential for bit of Christopher Bailey’s work – maybe the dress she actually wore for the A/W’13 show? If not, maybe CD will fly the flag for other Brits: we’ve suggested a bit of metallica from Vivienne Westwood or Jonathan Saunder’s corsetry from next season.


You can always trust the Sev-ster to do something wacky. That’s why we’re hoping she may wear one of the above: Miu Miu’s patent skirt and crop top, Chloe’s tulle skirt and crop top (worn with flats, obvs) or Proenza Schouler’s punky leather patchwork. Whatever she chooses, it’ll do our favourite thing – divide opinion!


Inherently chic but always willing to take a risk is Diane Kruger. She’s worn Jason Wu, Calvin Klein and Prada in the past, but there’s something about tgus red frothy McQueen dress, the sheer gown from Jason Wu or cheeky LBD with thigh-high patent boots from Chanel that could fit her bill.


The young actress will be co-hosting the big night, so there could be multiple outfit changes on the cards. Again, she’s a Givenchy girl at the core, but we’d also like to imagine the style chameleon glamming it up to the nines in this sequinned Gucci frock from A/W’13 or a bit of black lace Valentino couture.


Being the darling of both Hollywood and fashiontown, we’ll expect Jennifer Lawrence to be in attendance. And to be wearing Dior, natch. We hope she goes for something young, fun and unexpected like any of these three creations from Raf Simons.


Following a string of Saint Laurent pieces worn recently AND the fact that Hedi Slimanei’s Autumn Winter 2013 collection for the fashion house is all about grunge, we reckon Mossy could swap her Marc Jacobs Met Ball mantle for a bit of SL and wow the crowds with a brazen show of bare leg.


It’s highly likely that the songstress will turn up considering her tight relationship with Mr Tisci, so one would assume that she will wear her pal’s wares. BUT, in a dream situation, RiRi would boldly take the punk look to the maximum with a tartan suit (like this from Moschino) or another rebellious concoction like Givenchy’s leather skirt and checked shirt from A/W’13. OR, she could surprise us all with her minimalist-pretty ways in something balletic like Nina Ricci’s monochrome dress from Fall.

Forget the Oscars, leave the Golden Globes in the past and don’t even think twice about the Baftas, the real event on the fashion industry’s calendar is, and probably always will be, the New York Met Ball. It’s where the style elite go wild for the most glamorous gowns or, without fear, break each and every rule about red carpet dressing. This is where Anja Rubik’s hip bone became a celebrity in its own right, where Marc Jacobs wore a see-through lace dress and where Kate Moss casually fashioned a gold lame turban out of nowhere to look heart-breakingly beautiful. It’s where fashion moments are made, so of course we’re already thinking about who’s going to wear what.

As you may already know, the theme is punk and the new co-chair (in addition to longstanding Met Ball HRH Anna Wintour) is Beyoncé. We know, we know, Beyoncé and punk don’t exactly make for the most obvious pairing in the history of fashion, but if anyone can transform herself for one night only, it’s our Bey. Let’s not forget, Riccardo Tisci and Givenchy are steering the punk Met Ball ship for 2013 and Mrs Carter did in fact wear a couture design from the French fashion house for last year’s big event.

So we’ve selected eight of our favourite (and the top suspected) Met Ball attendees to predict what their sartorial statements could be this time next month….
