Wintour herself will be joining Lawrence as a co-host for the evening, according to Hollywood Life.
The always-fashionable Lawrence seems like a perfect addition to the co-hosts of the evening: Wintour, actress Gong Li, president and CEO of Yahoo! Marissa Mayer and businesswoman Wendi Murdoch. Lawrence will be in powerful company.
Following the event, the Met Gala exhibit is slated to run from May 7 to Aug. 16. As usual, it’s all about beautiful couture. In 2015, high fashion will be paired alongside Chinese costumes, paintings, porcelains and films as a way to showcase the “ongoing conversation between the East and the West,” according to Hollywood Life.
Dozens of designers are set to be involved in the exhibit, including Giorgio Armani, Roberto Cavalli, Emilio Pucci, John Galliano for Dior, Jean Paul Gaultier, Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton, Alexander McQueen for Givenchy, Isabel Toledo and Vivienne Westwood.
Lawrence herself has become quite the fashion icon. She stunned at the 2011 Oscars in a form-fitting red Calvin Klein dress, which shocked the world since her role in Winter’s Bone, which earned her a Best Actress nomination, showed the young starlet ruggedly void of any makeup or glam. From that point on, Lawrence has become a style icon in her own right, constantly surprising with her often upscale but simple looks.
The Hunger Games actress also has a reputation for being down-to-earth and even a little clumsy despite her beauty. We just hope she doesn’t trip on this red carpet. If she did, though, maybe it would just make us love her more.
