Met Ball 2013 Couples: Who Is (Rumour Has It) Walking The Red Carpet With Whom?

05 May 2013 by

So unless you've taken a vacay from planet fashion, we're sure you have it scribbled in your diaries that tomorrow night is the 2013 Met Ball. We've already recapped our favourite vintage Met Ball moments, told you how you can get involved in the red carpet action and done some of our own frock predictions. But that leaves one question - who is walking the red carpet with whom? 

The Met Gala is where we saw Victoria Beckham walk up the Met steps arm in arm with Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce, Sarah Jessica Parker take Valentino as her date and Marc Jacobs walk the red carpet with Lil Kim (yes, really). So which fashion duos are we expected to see this year? Of course the Met Ball dates are meant to be one big fashion secret, but that doesn't stop a rumour or ten.

Mr Eric Wilson at the New York Times has rounded up who he thinks is dressing who. Of course there are some pretty obvious pairings - Jennifer Lawrence with Dior, the Fanning sisters with Rodarte and Rooney Mara with co-chair Riccardo Tisci. But the weirdest couple rumoured to be hitting the red carpet is a toss up between Nicki Minaj and Tommy Hilfiger and Psy (yes, the K Pop star) and Samsung. Take a look in the gallery above to see who is rumoured to be walking up the Met steps with who...
