Rodarte, Wang, Thakoon to Design Eveningwear for Gap

On Monday, the Metropolitan Museum of Art will once again swell with celebrities, socialites and fashion editors for the annual Costume Institute Gala to kick off the this year’s exhibit titled “American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity.” But since this year Gap is the official sponsor and Gap creative director Patrick Robinson is honorary co-chair (along with Anna Wintour and Oprah Winfrey), and since the Gap doesn’t do eveningwear, certain designers have agreed to collaborate with the brand to create gowns for celebrity guests. 

According to Women’s Wear Daily, Jessica Alba and Vera Farmiga will wear Sophie Theallet for Gap; Kerry washington and Riley Keough will wear Thakoon for Gap; M.I.A. and Zoe Kravitz will be in Alexander Wang for Gap; and Kirsten Dunst and Jamie Bochert will be in Rodarte for Gap. That last one is perhaps the hardest to imagine.
