The biggest night in fashion just got even bigger. Less than a year after the 2015 Met Gala and the blockbuster exhibition it celebrated, "China: Through the Looking Glass," director Andrew Rossi will debut his documentary chronicling the events surrounding the extravaganza, The First Monday in May, at the Tribeca Film Festival's opening night.
The movie follows Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton as he designs the politically-charged exhibition — "The show is meant to be controversial, but I'm not afraid of controversy," he notes in the film's trailer — and Anna Wintour (the Costume Institute's Costume Centre is named for her), who is responsible for organising the entire gala. In addition, fashion luminaries including designers Karl Lagerfeld and Jean-Paul Gaultier appear to comment on the eternal question: is fashion really art? Get a sneak peek below, then catch the film when it hits theatres April 15.
