Red carpet preparations are already underway for one of the biggest nights in fashion -- the Met Gala. Stylists, designers, and celebrities, are putting the finishing touches on what are sure to be some of the year's most memorable red carpet looks, and you'd better believe we're following them every step of the way on social media.

This year's theme is Charles James, an "architect" of fashion and famous cotourier, and we're guessing the fashion and beauty looks will err more towards the side of traditionally pretty than last year's Steampunk ensembles. Either way, anything goes at the Met Gala, and we're certain someone will be able to trump Kim Kardashian's gloved, floral couch-inspired dress last year. Well, OK -- almost certain.
