Michelle Obama, Victoria Beckham, and Others Kick Off Met Ball Mania!

Aaaand we’re off! Met Gala madness is officially under way as First Lady Michelle Obama just cut the ribbon at the star studded opening of the Anna Wintour Costume Center. Or as we like to think of it: pre-gaming before Fashion Prom.

We know you’re all wondering—the FLOTUS wore an embellished Naeem Khan dress to cut the ribbon.

Mrs. Obama also announced that she and new BFF Anna Wintour will organize a student fashion workshop at the White House. (Thank you, The Cut’s Isabel Wilkinson for the on-site report).

Also spotted at the posh ceremony: Posh!

Victoria and David Beckham landed at JFK this morning, kicking off speculation that the couple will attend the ball tonight. Since Victoria was snapped chatting with cochair Sarah Jessica Parker this morning, we’re feeling a Posh and Becks red carpet moment tonight. Squee!
