A documentary on the biggest fashion event on the calendar will take you behind-the-scenes. But will it spoil the mystery?

The Metropolitan Museum of Art's annual gala has fast become the biggest red carpet fash-off on the calendar, but sadly few of us get to see much more than the pre-party photo-op (or hear the after-party gossip ie Solange going in on Jay-Z in the elevator). That's all about to change though with the announcement that Vogue and Condé Nast Entertainment are teaming up with Relativity Studios and filmmaker Andrew Rossi (Page One: Inside the New York Times and Ivory Tower) to create a film that will show all the hard work that goes into creating one of the biggest bashes of the year (perhaps trumped only by the Oscars). We're also promised a look at what happens inside on the night, but are pretty sure that all the wildest superstar behavior will end up on the cutting room floor.

This year's show, China: Through the Looking Glass, sees director Wong Kar Wai as artistic director and will run from May to 7- August 16. With recent years proving that dressing according to the show's theme is increasingly popular (we can't with the looks at the Punk: Chaos to Couture year!), start getting anxious that there'll be a rash of Hollywood and music stars rocking sexy cheongsam dresses. Anyway, if you want to play a part, but can't afford the $25,000 ticket, then this doc is for you. No release date has been confirmed.
