The first bit of Met Ball news surfaced during New York Fashion Week, when Jenna Lyons let slip that Joseph Altuzarra would bring Lana Del Rey as his date. Rumor number two hits today: Jennifer Lopez is said to be performing at the annual gala.
Lopez, who’s enthusiastically embracing the spotlight after her recent divorce from Marc Anthony, would join a recent list of varied performers including Florence + the Machine, Lady Gaga, Kanye West and Rihanna.
This year’s exhibition is dedicated to Schiapparelli and Miuccia Prada—two designers whose work couldn’t be less Lopez. The pop star, actress, and mother of two’s taste leans more toward Versace and Roberto Cavalli. Though given Prada’s lineup of suits this season, the designer’s bound to be creating dozens of custom made gowns in honor of the ball. Surely a Prada with a plunging neck for J. Lo can’t be too far fetched.
